Unless you compile your code with -msoft-float *and* also have a version of libgcc compiled with -mlong-calls -mno-abicalls -G0. If you do it that way, floating point works fine in the kernel (as long as you don't try to call sprintf with floating point parameters).

I won't even concede that solution. It's bad practice and design to have
floating point in the kernel.

I agree that floating point in the kernel is bad practice. However under some circumstances, the most expedient solution does not conform to best practice.
