Oops, botched merge conflict.

Easily fixed.

Darn, missed the Win-CE port...

Otherwise, I think this is OK (given a

I would expect, something like:

All ARM targets using the legacy FPA floating-point format have been
obsoleted.  These include the ARM ports for FreeBSD, Linux (old ABI),
ucLinux (old ABI), rtems (old ABI), Ecos, Win-CE and the old ELF
bare-metal configurations.

I'm a bit unhappy about the general wording there.  I don't particularly
want these ports reviving.  I'd rather see configurations that don't use
the FPA format floats being contributed.  Suggestions?
