This seems like the right move, particularly since int-heavy code won't
benefit at all from this change. IMHO, what we really want is to take
advantage of features on more "modern" arm cpus - the user shouldn't
have to care if that's because of hardfp or thumb-2 or whatever else.
Suggested arch names: armfast / armfull ?
