Why does -mips3 default to -mabi=64?
Just because somebody has a processor that has those instructions doesn't
mean they want to use the 64-bit ABI. You can interoperate binaries
between the different values of the -mips switch, but not -mabi.
So it would seem to me that the -mips value should not affect the
-mabi value at all.
What do others think?
