Can I see these patches, please?
(What is the #define for the FP?)

I also removed the FP Emulator in the kernel, just to be sure that
no SF ins are executed (I can send the patch to the list, but I know
there has already been discussion about this).

IMHO, if we say that we have a SF toolchain then there MUST NOT
BE any SF ins, otherwise we have a "semi soft float" toolchain.
Don't you agree?
