It is.  The following comment from config/mips/abi64.h (lost when the
definitions from that file were merged into mips.h) still applies:

/* ??? Unimplemented stuff follows.  */

/* ??? Add support for 16 byte/128 bit long doubles here when
   mips_abi != ABI32.  */

I didn't have much time to work on gcc lately, but David Edelsohn's support
or 128-bit long doubles in AIX (implemented as a pair of 64-bit doubles)
applies to IRIX 6 long doubles as well, since both platforms use the same
format as documented in math(3M).
