The assumption has previously been that there must be a value known
at compile time (because it would be the value of whatever is in the
ELF header for the QEMU executable itself, effectively). I'm not
sure why this doesn't work for MIPS still -- if you're building
on a host with the new nanoMIPS stuff and with that support enabled,
then report EM_NANOMIPS; if you're building a binary that works with
the older MIPS CPUs, report EM_MIPS ?

That said, if this doesn't work for MIPS, then it would be a trivial
refactor to allow the tcg per-target code to do
#define ELF_HOST_MACHINE mips_get_elf_host_machine()
so you could compute the value at runtime.
