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).
