Bug#596804: eglibc: Please add new architecture armhf

Package: eglibc
Version: 2.11.2-5
Severity: normal
User: debian-arm@lists.debian.org
Usertags: armhf

Please add the new architecture armhf to eglibc. In case you are unaware of armhf,
there is an ongoing effort to provide a new optimized ARM port using hardfloat EABI. 
The ports' base requirements are armv7-a, thumb-2, vfpv3-d16 and it's going to use
by default -mfloat-abi=hard (vs soft on armel, or softfp on Ubuntu). So far benchmarks
have shown that it's on average 30-40% faster than softfp. 

The port is already setup on debian-ports.org and there are 5 autobuilders setup and
busy compiling packages:


The port right now uses eglibc with the attached patch.

Please consider applying the patch -or in case I have made a mistake or misunderstood
something, please correct me if I'm wrong.

I will maintain the port and I have rejoined Debian recently.
