Otherwise it produces ABI breakage. As submitted, it also seems to be removing FLT_EVAL_METHOD in the new ABI, but this is easily fixed. Also, what is the calling convention for IEEE quad? Does it use registers that are only available on certain models, so that not just the hard-float code using it, but also the basic ABI, has a minimum ISA level associated with it? Or is the calling convention compatible with older models too and just needing softfloat code on them (which libgcc presumably provides)? Rich
