Seconded. Since this port will work on all ARM SoCs that meet the
minimal hardware requirements, it should not be named around a
specific vendor. Something vendor neutral like "armfp",
"armel_hardfloat", etc. is much more appropriate (although we should
probably try to make it clear in the vendor name that you need
specific CPU features to fully support it).
