How useful is this really for normal developers? We complained when
this option was proposed by the ARM developers who were, for the first
time, handling more than one processor and the issues involved with
that. You are enabling this as a default option, for all developers,
and almost no one will ever need it.

So, if you really want this, don't enable this by default. Also, go
back and read the old thread about this option and why it was rejeted
previously.

thanks,
