IIUC, It will not change anything for MIPS. Please note that kcore.c was changed, not fs/binfmt_elf.c.
But I think the mips port should be defining ELF_CORE_EFLAGS in it's asm/elf.h to create kcore files that indicate the correct ABI for n32 kernels.

At the moment, I think a mips n32 kernel will dump cores for userspace programs with the correct EF_MIPS_ABI2 flag but the same kernel will create kcore files with zero eflags (o32).

Best regards
