No, this is still misleading.  The presense or otherwise of an FPU is
irrelevant on ARM with respect to the code. My first recommendation
remains to find out the exact cause of the differences that lead to this
incorrect conclusion being made.    I also suggest making any comparison
to i386 might just cloud the issue.
