The ARM1176JZF-S manual says

"The VFP supports all five floating point exceptions defined by the
IEEE 754 standard"


rpi# dmesg |grep exceptions
vfp0 at cpu0: VFP11, rounding, exceptions

... but the userland does not have any of the fenv(3) stuff so
I suppose it's still missing some code. Maybe this would be a good
google SoC project?
