I'm somewhat surprised that sys/mips/mips still exists on the main branch?  But anyway,

It's a long story, but it's been talked about for several years now. It was retained
in the tree 18 months ago when it was last discussed to allow a large customer
to migrate to from doing their research on MIPS to arm and riscv. I have a branch
in my repo locally to remove it and hope to post the review in the coming days.
If things go well, it will be gone by the end of the month. I'd planned on keeping
mips on in the bsd-user fork until we hit a point when it was too much work to
keep it going, but that time came much sooner than I expected.
