i.MX6 Hardware Floating Point Support

The hardware floating point (hardfp) use an on-chip floating point unit to perform mathematics on floating point numbers, while software floating point (softfp) emulates one of these units in software. This is the reason why hardfp is faster than softfp. The name of this unit is FPU (floating point unit), which is a piece of hardware that can take floating point values and an operator and return a value. This hardware is optimized to just do floating point math so it performs much better than doing the operations in software.

We are using the following linaro toolchain and kernel version for the iMX6 with hardware floating point:{tortags,,1}
