Well, in that case we simply won't have an unwinder for signal frames, but
the target will work for other things.  That said, I don't know of any
existing toolchain that supports generating FreeBSD/mips binaries that
supports any ABIs other than o32, n32, and n64.  Specifically, FreeBSD
does not have any o64 support, and binutils doesn't have a linker emulation
for any other ABIs on FreeBSD/mips.
