Yes, it is :-)  I didn't think it would have a life beyond MPC8xx.

It seems like a lifetime ago....  I copied the framework
from Sparc, and the internals from gcc soft-float.  I didn't
change any of the internal emulation functions (hence,
some of the warnings), just the calling interface.

While it's convenient, I still don't think kernel float
emulation should be a solution.  The tools should
generate soft-float for the applications and libraries.
