I'm not familiar with MIPS, but if their processors are similar
to ARM cores ones, then most don't have a floating point unit.
And therefore they use soft-floating point.
(For ARM, there's a another option with the Linux-kernel FPU
emulator, but soft-float is faster compared to generating FPU
opcodes, trapping them and handling them in the kernel).
