I have just checked the built-tree of a freshly built
mips-rtems-gcc-3.2.2 and see the following:
* soft-float dirs are being compiled with -msoft-float.
* Some object files in soft-float multilib variants are reported to be
using FPU instructions.
# file build/mips-rtems/soft-float/newlib/libc/machine/mips/memset.o
32-bit MSB MIPS-I relocatable, MIPS, version 1 MathCoPro/FPU/MAU
Required (SYSV), not stripped
32-bit MSB MIPS-I relocatable, MIPS, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped
memset.o is reported to be using FPU-instructions, while setjmp.o is
reported not to be using FPU-instructions.
=> Either "file" has problems or mips-rtems-gcc is applying FPU-code in
soft-float binaries. I'd suspect the latter.
Could somebody knowledgeable on the mips architecture please check if
the *.o really contain FPU code?
