I think that it's too late for a new a port come into JDK 8 Updates 
Project at this time, with less then a year to go under the current 
maintainers, considering how long it would take to bring the code into 
OpenJDK, run through the JEP process, code reviews, etc.

It's probably too late for a fresh port to make it into JDK 11, as well, 
with less than a month to go until rampdown starts.

So my suggestion would be to start by bringing your port into the MIPS 
Porting Project, and then, once it's brought forward to JDK 11 and there 
is a build passing JCK for Java SE 11, to go through the JEP process for 
inclusion in a later version of the JDK.
