    Well darn, that patch fixed the wrong bit and we still have float in there.
    allmodconfig doesn't pick this up.

    drivers/built-in.o: In function `sisfb_do_set_var':
    //drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c:654: undefined reference to `__floatsidf'
    drivers/built-in.o: In function `sisfb_init':
    //drivers/video/sis/sis_main.c:4450: undefined reference to `__floatsidf'

    Search for "1E12" in sis_main.c

    Here's the patch which adds -msoft-float to the kernel build, which picks
    up these things.
