[PATCH][mips] Refine octeon instructions seq/seqi/sne/snei

I've been wondering about the way we have comparisons defined to produce an i32 on MIPS64. It works, but I'm pretty sure it's wrong and should be i64 since the instructions used to implement it write i64 zero/one to the register. Unfortunately, I haven't had chance to look into changing it yet.

LGTM with a nit:
* As with the other patch, could you fill out the registers for the MIPS64 portions of the case too?
