The major way I would foresee its rotting would be via -msoft-float.
If my understanding that this would be the only way we'd run on FPUless
x86, then this would be the only user of i386 -msoft-float....
I thought that kernel is always built with -msoft-float?
I mean, how much could such compile options get incompatibile with
possible source changes -
asm()s using FPU instructions, is the first way that comes to mind.
But that was an issue always - even back when the emulation worked, right?
The only way to solve such thing would be to have complete emulation of
FPU (we could countinue with MMX, SSE...).
