Martin Jansa - Dec. 26, 2012, 11:52 a.m.
* without this patch it does apply --fix-v4bx not only to armv4, but
  also all higher (because they also have armv4 in TUNE_FEATURES)
* it causes SIGILL on armv4t
* someone please test on armv4 device (I tested only bitbake -e output
  that it's correctly applied with DEFAULTTUNE == armv4
* maybe we can should fix this in binutils instead (both 2.22 and 2.23
  are affected)
