What I'm talking about is aclocal.m4 GET_ARM_ISA function. There we need 
to check for ARMv6's VFP implementation and set ARM_ISA_EXT accordingly. 
I don't have Rasberry here so I'm not sure how to check for VFP versus 
VFPv2 in a best way, but probably we may omit this and just assume when 
we do have ARMv6 the VFP is v2? Once this is done, then just 
DriverPipeline.hs need to check for this and set appropriate vfpv2 
option for llc...
