Yes.  The configurations that support -mno-float have separate -mno-float
multilibs.  In a sense, the point of -mno-float instead of -msoft-float is
to select these cut-down libraries.

Yeah, that's the idea.  More generally, run initialize_argument_information
once for each ABI and compare the two arg_data arrays.  Similarly for
