All good. My vote is for /lib/ld-arm-linux-gnueabihf.so.3 as it:
* is similar to /lib/ld-x86-64.so.2
* keeps the libraries and loader in the same directory
* doesn't invent a new /libhf directory
* is easier to implement in GLIBC
* is architecture and ABI unique
* requires less change for distros where the hard float libraries are
already in /lib
I'm happy to do the GLIBC and GCC implementation.
