"Cortex" is a whole family of ARM CPUs. FPC full supports the ARM  
Cortex "A" family of processor (A8, A9). The Luminary cpu is a Cortex- 
M3. These only support Thumb and Thumb-2. There is support for Thumb-2  
(and in particular the Cortex-M3) in FPC trunk, but I don't know how  
well-tested or maintained it is (the support was added via third party
