Question: So now if I build in buildroot with -mhs38_linux, it will use hard float
(kernel should not use floating point) but the libgcc linked will be different too
and that should be OK ?

I've rewritten the changelog.

kernel builds set their own default -mcpu for a given ISA build.
But that gets in the way of "custom" -mcpu flags from propagating
into kernel build.

This will also be used in next patches for HSDK-4xD board support which
uses a different -mcpu to effect dual issue scheduling.
