Subject[PATCH net-next v7 01/28] ARM: makefile: use ARMv3M mode for RiscPC
The purpose of CONFIG_CPU_32v3 is to avoid ldrh/strh on the RiscPC,
which is pretty much an ARMv4 device, except its bus will choke on the
half-words. The way to make the C compiler not output ldrh/strh is with
-march=armv3, which doesn't support them in the ISA. However, this
prevents certain cryptography code from working that uses instructions
like umull. Fortunately there's also -march=armv3m that does support
those, making it possible to continue assembling optimized cryptography
routines for our beloved RiscPC.

This commit has been submitted to the proper ARM tree and is working its
way upstream. It's included in this series here so that kbuild 0-day bot
doesn't get too nervous about RiscPC, but is already entering the tree
through arm-next.
