The change cherry-picks fine onto 10.x and 11.x branches. Should I
send out separate patches or can the committer of this patch apply it
to 10.x and 11.x?

It is actually the other way around - for MIPS hard-float targets on
non-glibc (or glibc < 2.31) without this change the .note.GNU-stack
annotation is not emitted by GCC.
