The fix for this has been in main branch since May 4, with a request to 
merge into release/12.x, and yet the release candidate does not include 
this, despite the bug open as a 12.0.1 release blocker.

Downstream we have our MIPS test suite disabled because of this bug. It 
was passing with LLVM 11.

I'm pretty frustrated over here too. What's the hurry on tagging 
releases? Can't we wait to tag releases until all the release blockers 
are fixed?

This is a compiler backend. Priority number one should be not 
introducing regressions. The timing of releases is not important at all 
in comparison.
