Well, AFAIK the Delphi compiler for ARM will be based on LLVM. So in the
current state FPC will loose big time. But we're making progress, I'm
benchmarking from time to time and over the last months we've gained
10-15%. But there are a lot of optimizations which are hard to solve
with the current way the compiler works.
