How much of the arm* silliness is there actually? There's already quite

While there have been some changes they have been gradual and afacit it is
possible to write inline assembler that will work on pretty much any arm
system. Still some upstreams do the wrong thing (which reminds me, I need to
go file a bug against gnuradio).
Wheras AIUI from steeves talk aarch64 assembler will be totally incompatible
with 32-bit arm assembler. So any build system that ends up treating
aarch64 the same as 32-bit arm will almost certainly be doing the wrong
on arm* can already be considered a bad idea.
