Distros are starting to ship with toolchains defaulting to
hardfloat. Using such a compiler to build the kernel fails
in the VFP directory with
arch/arm/vfp/entry.S:1:0: sorry, unimplemented: -mfloat-abi=hard and VFP
Adding -mfloat-abi=soft to the gcc command line fixes this.

Replace EXTRA_CFLAGS with ccflags-y and EXTRA_AFLAGS with asflags-y.

The variable AFLAGS is a wellknown variable and the usage by
kbuild may result in unexpected behaviour.
On top of that several people over time has asked for a way to
pass in additional flags to gcc.
This patch replace use of AFLAGS with KBUILD_AFLAGS all over
Patch was tested on following architectures:
alpha, arm, i386, x86_64, mips, sparc, sparc64, ia64, m68k, s390

Since we pass flags to the compiler to control code generation based
on the least capable selected CPU, if we want to include VFP support,
we must tweak the assembler flags to allow the VFP instructions.
Moreover, we must not use the mrrc/mcrr versions since these will not
be recognised by the assembler.
We do not convert all instructions to the VFP-equivalent (yet) since
binutils appears to barf on "fmrx rn, fpinst" and doesn't provide any
other way (other than using the mrc equivalent) to encode this
instruction - which is rather a problem when you have a VFP
implementation which requires these instructions.

Initial git repository build. I'm not bothering with the full history,
even though we have it. We can create a separate "historical" git
archive of that later if we want to, and in the meantime it's about
3.2GB when imported into git - space that would just make the early
git days unnecessarily complicated, when we don't have a lot of good
infrastructure for it.
Let it rip!
