There was a patch submitted a while ago that doesn't
seem to have been rolled into 7.2.1 that fixes this.
It does it by patching s_lock.c to add the set .mips2
assembler directive. The patch is attached.

Your patch works just as well. It is what I have been
doing to get PostgreSQL to compile on the MIPS machine
I am using.
