The number of ARM700+FPA11 modules in existance is numbered in single
There are more of the 7500FE CPU's around that NetBSD does support
(e.g. A7000+) but offhand I don't actually know anyone running NetBSD on
However not sure how a 56MHz 7500FE with FP instructions compares against
a 233MHz SA110 with software FP.
