I'm merging this report with #815998 over on src:golang-1.7 (and
adding an appropriate "affects" relation to hopefully help point folks
over there in the future).

The main issue with getting it in essentially boils down to gccgo and
upstream Go disagreeing on the GOARCH for mips64el (gccgo uses
"mipsn64"[0]), which makes bootstrapping difficult.
