This is very important for the (future?) port armhf, and I'm especially
interested in the hardfp patches. Right now I'm forced to use linaro or -
codesourcery 2010q1 until recently- but it would of course help immensely if I
could just use the same compiler as Debian.
FWIW, the graphite patches seem to be adding just an extra ounce of
performance so I'd include them as well -though they aren't linaro-specific,
just a backport from 4.5, but still.
