Below is a fragment of code from our MIPS patch. The code you see removed
was part of our 2.12.1 patch that no longer functions correctly in 2.16.
The modifications in mips_elf_sort_hash_table_f technically work, but I
doubt it's the correct/best way to accomplish this.
Question #2 in the following posting gives a little more information about
the problem I'm trying to solve.
