mips and mipsel has been on this list since 2015 (10.0.23-1 debian release) as 
upstream doesn’t guarantee that the tests will pass on this platform, so the 
change just rectifies the situation after mips64el was added to the release 
architecture list.

As a side note: There has been recent work to move the whole suite to the 
autopkgtest suite instead of running it as a part of build process, and fix any 
failing tests on non-major platforms in asynchronous manner.

I already offered Matthew Vernon help with pcre3, but it’s not my place to 
request pu for other people packages. As far as I remember this affects only 
edge cases on edge architectures, but it was broken before anyway, so we are 
basically just keeping status quo.

I switched to gbp pq for patch management as it makes it easier for me to manage
the patches, but I can revert the most intrusive changes. Dropping the 
and authorship was not intended.
