Isn't there a quick fix here by building them with -marm instead of -mthumb?
While being *totally* thumb2 is a noble goal (and a required one IMO),
at the moment
none of the supported processors are thumb2-only. Yes, running Debian
on a Cortex-M4
would be wicked awesome, but not today, is basically my view on it
If it gets the rest of the system building with maybe a small

All we need is a way of marking the package as -marm'd and still needs
