Other archs (arm, intel) do not do that, so I think we should follow, and set 
PER_LINUX, but let userspace change this if it wants to. On the kernel side this
only affects uname. From the discussion [1] it seems like the right way to go.

Subject: [PATCH] Fix personality syscall for mips64-o32/n32
Content-Length: 5435
Lines: 139

Remove unnecessary sys_32_personality wrapper, which replaces
PER_LINUX32 with PER_LINUX.

Most other archs removed the wrapper even before 2.6.

Now that exec domains are gone, there is almost no kernel code using
personality flags - so set PER_LINUX and let userspace change it.

This fixes bionic test on Android, by making mips more like other
architectures. Change has been tested on mips64 (n64 and o32), there
were no regressions.

Hi,

I am not sure what the implication will be to userland with that change...

I presume you also need to fix the n32 case and then completely remove the sys_32_personality
syscall from linux32.c. Moreover, I think you also need to fix the arch/mips/include/asm/elf.h
code to set LINUX32 for O32 and n32 (for both 32b and 64b kernels.)

If you are going to submit a new patch, can you please create a proper git patch
(using git format-patch) and include your Signed-off-by line as well? Thank you
