Matthew Fortune pointed out that -msingle-float has the same issue.  I
didn't run into it because I wasn't building single-float multilibs but
I modified this patch to pass -msingle-float and -mdouble-float to the
assembler as well as -mhard-float and -msoft-float.  Here is the
modified patch to pass all four flags on to the assembler.
