commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=09c6e28233230a84932591699d802b1b6677f7cf
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

The FPv4-SP FPU is a single-precision FPU with 16 double registers [0]
[1]. It is only available for cortex-m4 cores, and is known to gcc as
fpv4-sp-d16 (note that there is no leading 'v') since gcc-4.5 [2].
