This is nothing one has to analyze, just making it work. I have
repeatedly asked for a kernel .config ¹) that is noMMU and softfloat
that i can use with qemu to check, to no avail. Apparently noone is
interrested in both noMMU nor softfloat and i do have both an mmu and an
fpu. "My lack of caring is deep and profound" as some usually say.

¹) I'm lazy and don't want to experiment with a setup i don't use --
i.e. anything except i386.
