True, this would have been picked up by a powerpc bootstrap. But in
case there's implied criticism (here or elsewhere) of MIPS being a
good enough boostrap target, I did bootstrap this on i686-linux-gnu
and alpha-linux-gnu as well. Unfortunately, I don't have access to
a powerpc box, so powerpc went untested.
Of course, the real fix is not make such damn fool mistakes
in the first place ;(
