Hi Hamish,

I tried to apply your patch 910-soft-float.patch

# BR2_ARM_EABI is not set

It compiled successfully but

readelf -h build_arm/staging_dir/lib/libuClibc-0.9.29.so
ELF Header:
  Magic:   7f 45 4c 46 01 01 01 61 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

  Data:                              2's complement, little endian
  Version:                           1 (current)
  OS/ABI:                            ARM

  Size of this header:               52 (bytes)
  Size of program headers:           32 (bytes)
  Number of program headers:         6
  Size of section headers:           40 (bytes)
  Number of section headers:         23
  Section header string table index: 22

Seems I get anyway EABI not OABI. Can you confirm this?

seems like "arm gcc-4.1.2 + oabi + soft floats fails to build"
should be treated as "arm gcc-4.1.2 + EABI + soft floats fails to build" ?
