this makes it possible to inline them with LTO, and is the simplest
approach to eliminating the use of .sub files.
this also makes VFP sqrt available for use with the standard EABI
(plain arm rather than armhf subarch) when libc is built with
-mfloat-abi=softfp. the same could have been done for fabs, but when
the argument and return value are in integer registers, moving to VFP
registers and back is almost certainly more costly than a simple
these files are all accepted as legacy arm syntax when producing arm
code, but legacy syntax cannot be used for producing thumb2 with
access to the full ISA. even after switching to UAL, some asm source
files contain instructions which are not valid in thumb mode, so these
will need to be addressed separately.
Some armhf gcc toolchains (built with --with-float=hard but without
--with-fpu=vfp*) do not pass -mfpu=vfp to the assembler and then
binutils rejects the UAL mnemonics for VFP unless there is an .fpu vfp
directive in the asm source.
