There are some bug fixes for x86_64 here.

GotoBLAS (and GotoBLAS2) were the de facto BLAS on many HPC systems, and
are well proven. But there is no software without bugs. 

I don't think there is a reason to prefer GotoBLAS2 to OpenBLAS. But you
could of course just cherry-pick all bugfixes for x86 and amd64 and leave
out the rest of the changes. Differences between OpenBLAS and GotoBLAS2 for
MIPS does not really matter for Windows...
