In Fedora we specifically mean VFPv3-D16 when we're talking about hard 
float.  This is the lowest common denominator for us.  If you want to 
support armv5hl, armv6hl, and armv7hl as all being possible (whatever 
string you like to represent it) that's good to know because it's beyond 
what we're contemplating.
