Toolchain
=========

ARM Cortex-A9 support ARM v7 instruction set (-march=armv7a).
But currently we compile with -march=armv5 to allow more compilers to work.
(For U-Boot code this has no performance impact.)
Because there was no compiler which is supporting armv7a not much before.
22
Currently, ELDK[5], Linaro[6], CodeSourcey[7] and Emdebian[8] supports -march=armv7a
