Hi Brian,

As far as I'm aware, your analysis is spot on. Compiler-RT does assume
soft-float for obvious reasons, but as you have demonstrated, this is
not correct in some cases. GCC seems to have multiple.

These are the variants I have on my box:


While it'd be great to have all of them optimised for each arch, I
think we can start with hard and soft float for now. I also don't know
if we support Thumb-only code in compiler-rt, but we should.

I checked with the GCC folks, and the behaviour is:

 * arm-linux-gnueabi has *only* soft-float
 * arm-linux-gnueagihf has *only* hard float
 * arm-none-eabi has *all* variations (above) with the default being soft-float

Can you create a bug in LLVM's bugzilla with your analysis and all the
info here, so we can have a look? Please copy me and the people I've
added CC on this email.
