Peter has said why he did it to a number of people. Its so he can get on with the port without the constant whining of users of 13 year old machines complaining that code aimed primarily at muli-GHz x86 PCs doesn,t work fast enough on thier 200MHz StrongARMs. Frankly given the perpetual moaning on csa, I fully endorse this position.

Both GCC and Norcroft can produce code optimised for XScale scheduling but not using XScale specific instructions, or 16bit load and stores if required. When Peter has finished the port all the source will be made available under the GPL and people will be able to compile it for whatever they want, and then the pointless bleating can start all over again.
