Yes the correct header on mips is just 'sgidefs.h' and while glibc has
provided it for years, android bionic only added it for lollipop.

This is the kernel header:

The one provided by glibc has a little more stuff but we don't need it.
_MIPS_SIM is defined by GCC (and some older mips compilers) to be equal
to one of the _MIPS_SIM_* constants depending on which ABI is selected.

GCC and Clang also define _ABI* themselves (as well as being defined in
the glibc version of the header) for the current ABI, so I suppose using
this without including anything might work if we don't care about other

#if defined(_ABI64) && _MIPS_SIM == _ABI64
