Since fedora has no problem mixing 32 and 64 bit executables it
seems like there's alot of infrastructure already done for this.
I've not looked at it all the way down to binary level, but I have a
feeling the problem is NOT quite analogous to mixing x86 with x86_64 or
x86 softfp/hardfp. But I'd love to hear otherwise. :)
Has anyone got any links to information on the subject of why missing
softfp and hardfp on ARMv7 isn't as straightforward as on x86?
