yes, porting the asm works, but note that the old
vfp intrinsics that work in binutils don't work in
llvm (complain to llvm folks) so it's not possible
to write asm such that every tool is happy, you
will need to do some ifdef clang hackery and i'm
not sure if the '.object_arch' directive works with
that old binutils.
