I have fixed a few of these, but your conditional assembler changes
aren't accepted by 'as':

Warning: Symbol SOFTFLOAT is implicitly imported

Part of the problem is of course that SOFTFLOAT is an internal value I
made up to support soft-float implementation, and certainly isn't known
by objasm.  I'm not sure what the answer might be at this point.

#ifdef __GCC__

It's never been __GCC__, you mean __GNUC__.

Norcroft compatibility is all very well, but you need to be careful that
what you're suggesting doesn't break things for the majority of overs
using cross builds.
