- Subject: Single precision math library, porting to eCos.
We are working on a port of Newlib's single precision math library
/float/ type functions/. We are going to contribute the port, so we
would like to know if there is interest to incorporate it into main eCos
Rartionale: Some recent/upcoming architectures such as Cortex-M4,
Cortex-R, MPC 55xx can execute single precision floating point in
hardware. This is also recognised by GCC, for instance GCC 4.6 can
generate /-mhard-float/ code for Cortex-M4.
