Hi Maciej,

I don't know about the status of PR target/53276.  The commit to add .cfi support for call stubs was this one:

r184379 | rsandifo | 2012-02-19 08:44:54 -0800 (Sun, 19 Feb 2012) | 7 lines

        * config/mips/mips.c (mips16_build_call_stub): Add CFI information
        to stubs with non-sibling calls.

        * config/mips/mips16.S (CALL_STUB_RET): Add CFI information.
