NoteSoftware floating-point linkage is not supported for AArch64 state.
If you specify this option, it overrides any implicit

The linker uses this option to optimize the choice of system libraries. The default is to select an FPU that is compatible with all of the component object files.
NoteARM® Compiler 6 does not support hardware floating-point linkage when using the armclang
The linker fails if any of the component object files rely on features that are incompatible with the selected FPU architecture.

If the processor you specify with
--cpu has a VFP coprocessor, the default target FPU
architecture is the VFP architecture for that processor.
