OK, thanks for the update! I've now merged your changes now into
Hatari, too, and added a command line option to switch between native
and softfloat ("--fpu-softfloat on/off").

Seems to work at a quick glance, but I also spotted already the first
bug: In the Falcon demo "4ever", there is a graphical glitch in the
tunnel screen (the one that can also be seen on the screenshot here: It works fine with native FPU.

Also GCC still spills out quite a big bunch of warning messages when
compiling the softfload code (e.g. about unused functions in
softfloat-specialize.h ... they should rather be "static inline" instead
of only "static") ... I'll address that with separate patches later.
