Peter Bigot - Aug. 14, 2014, 7:05 p.m.
The gcc-runtime recipe builds the gcc libraries including libstdc++ with
$TARGET_CC_ARCH flags, which include -march=FOO flags that affect
whether atomic instructions are available.  This causes an ABI
incompatibility when the compiler by default generates code for less
capable architectures.  For example, gcc-runtime libraries on a
Cortex-A8 are built with a different C++11/C++14 mutex implementation
than is used code compiled outside OE and without architecture-specific

This commit fixes the problem specifically for ABI issues related to
atomic instructions available in ARMV6 and subsequent architectures.
Other ABI incompatibilities may remain in other architectures.
