Finally got a chance to do some quick testing on this, it needs one
more change to drop the correction in do_undefinstr in traps.c, and
fix one register in entry-armv.S. Russell, do you have any interest
in this solution? Alternatively, a one line change to store the
corrected PC into the stack in vfphw.S instead of entry-armv.S will
fix the original problem (VFP_bounce from thumb mode returning to the
wrong address) without causing the problem introduced by your second
patch (undefined NEON or VFP-D32 instructions in thumb mode returning
to the wrong address).
