The FPU is single precision only, as far as I remember. That made it a 
little hard to work with in fpc, and last I took a stab at it there 
weren't any affordable chips around with support even.

The DSP instructions will probably need intrinsics to be useful, 
otherwise I guess they could simply be added as assembler instructions. 
They are fairly limited in scope anyway
