This is exactly what's happening on a number of packages (ffmpeg/libav being one
important one). hdf5 was also built with -marm on Ubuntu armel, as it failed the
build at some point -dunno if this is still the case, but it was a few
months ago.

But the real fix of course is to actually fix the broken asm code :)
