[PATCH] Fix compiler flags on ARM

Description of problem:

js build hardcodes -march=armv7-a, which is wrong on non-v7 ARms.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

On a v5 arm:
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$ lscpu
Architecture:          armv5tel
Byte Order:            Little Endian
CPU(s):                1
On-line CPU(s) list:   0
Thread(s) per core:    1
Core(s) per socket:    1
Socket(s):             1
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$ uname -a
Linux megalodon 3.7.0-6.fc19.armv5tel.kirkwood #1 Mon Dec 24 10:36:18 EST 2012 armv5tel armv5tel armv5tel GNU/Linux
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run js
Actual results:

[root@megalodon lkundrak]# /usr/lib/polkit-1/polkitd
Successfully changed to user polkitd
Illegal instruction
[root@megalodon lkundrak]# exit
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$ js
Illegal instruction
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$ 

Expected results:

[root@megalodon lkundrak]# /usr/lib/polkit-1/polkitd
Successfully changed to user polkitd
00:31:53.348: Loading rules from directory /etc/polkit-1/rules.d
00:31:53.352: Loading rules from directory /usr/share/polkit-1/rules.d
[root@megalodon lkundrak]# exit
[lkundrak@megalodon ~]$ js
js> trolol
typein:1: ReferenceError: trolol is not defined

Additional info:

Fix for the issue is attached.

Comment 1 Peter Robinson 2013-01-07 09:06:50 UTC
Actually we shouldn't have " -mthumb $MOZ_ARM_VFP_FLAGS" either as they're set by the rpm cflags to our required settings as well. I'll push a modified version of the patch today.

Comment 2 Dennis Gilmore 2013-01-23 14:39:12 UTC
I had already applied basicaly the same thing,  Peter is is correct, the build does not use -mthumb  that part of the files is chosen when you enable thumb optimisations as a build flag
