I noticed that arm oabi is still using -lfloat in LIBGCC_SPEC in
Looking around for libfloat, I found:
Which hasn't had a release since 1999, with a patch in 2000.
libgcc should provide these most of these soft float symbols.

If we don't get these symbols from gcc, then we get them from
This does not affect eabi, because the gcc/config/arm/linux-eabi.h
The reason I am bringing this up, is to validate a couple variants of
the same patch that has been floating around since about gcc 3.3:
and a newer version of this patch which adds more functions to
lib1asmfuncs (in libgcc?).
Any help in understanding why this is still here will be very helpful.
Thanks in advance,
