Hi Steve,
The patch itself looks okay, but perhaps a question for Matthew.
Does the fact that the assembler requires -msoft-float even if .set softfloat is present in the .s file deliberate behavior?
I don't have a problem with passing along the *float* options to gas, but would hope that the .set options were honored as well.
My short test indicated that the .set *float* options were being ignored if the correct command line option wasn't present.
