[Pixman] mips* asm exports symbols that should not export

Hi YunQiang Su,

Yes, if you use mips32r2 option to build for o32, these symbols will be
exported (since optimizations will be compiled).
And, once again, you are right, these symbols are internal API and shouldn't
be exported. We need to fix this.

I'm maintaining MIPS optimizations for Pixman repository, so I'll take a
look, and try to fix this.

Thanks for your observations,
Nemanja Lukic

With this patch, if I use mips32r2 option to build for o32, will these
symbols still be export?

As I understand, these symbols are internal APIs while should never be
Are them?
