Control: retitle -1 rustc can only be built for 32-bit mips* by cross-compiling; please override "Not built on buildd" blocker

Fixing badly-worded title.

> <adsb> no, the issue is
> <adsb>     Not built on buildd: arch mips binaries uploaded by infinity0
> <adsb>     Not built on buildd: arch mipsel binaries uploaded by infinity0
> <kibi> if in doubt → https://release.debian.org/britney/excuses.yaml look for source: rustc and verdicts for that stanza.
> <infinity0> is that a recent change in policy?
> <adsb> it was announced on dda

> <infinity0> i see ok. the reason i do this is because rustc mips builds run out of memory
> <infinity0> they can't be built natively on a mips machine, they have to be cross-built
> <infinity0> how do you guys think i should proceed?
> <infinity0> i tried asking buildd a while ago to support cross builds but they were reluctant to do it
> <elbrus> infinity0: please file a bug against release.debian.org to discuss this
> <elbrus> not promising anything but that is probably a reason for an exception
> <elbrus> apparently not everybody agrees...
> <_rene_> infinity0: can't you make it not built with -g or do -g1 or disable some features on mipsen?
> * _rene_ does the -g1 thingy too, for LO
> <_rene_> for anything except amd64 (and i386, but I probably should make it for i386, too, given I also ignore test suite failures there by now...)
> <infinity0> _rene_: i've already tried all of those things
> <_rene_> mmh, ok
> <infinity0> and various other llvm options, it's detailed in some thread on pkg-rust-maintainers
