Quote:

ARM announced its EABI nearly four years ago, with the release of version 2.0 of its RealView compiler collection. Described as a “cross-platform standard developed by ARM, in collaboration with major OS and tools vendors,” the EABI provides a standard way for programs and libraries to interact with processor hardware — including ARM's VFP (vector floating point) coprocessor and Cirrus's Maverick Crunch floating point unit (FPU).

Current Debian GNU/Linux releases for ARM use floating point instructions that are emulated in software, which carries a performance penalty, notes ADS.
