I tested a kernel, loader.efi, skiload and ski kernel with the new tools
and the all work the same as the old, so I would say it is fine to
switch anytime.

I probably should have refreshed memories about PR 51261, but it is no
worries.  Feel free to make any changes needed.

For my own reference and others interested, here are links that discusses
the [XF|TF]MODE settings (80/128 bit floating point), and libquadmath
which I think was added in gcc 4.6, and ia64 fp which seems "unique".
But as you say, this is all premature for ia64 anyway.

Thanks very much for the help
