Hum, that's confusing and not true in various ways.  The Ubuntu armel port
(there is no Ubuntu 'arm' port) is binary-compatible with the Debian armel
port, it is *not* binary-compatible with the armhf port; the minimum
supported hardware for armel is different between Debian and Ubuntu, but
then, this is true of the i386 port also; and Linaro doesn't have any
"ports" as it's not a distro... :)
