+Bug#: 76559
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: 1.1
+OS: All
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: JIT
+AssignedTo: lupus at ximian.com

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Software floating point emulation in the JIT
+The Nokia 770 hardware doesn't have a VFP coprocessor, so Mono currently
+offloads floating point operations to the FPA. A nice optimisation would be
+to instead do this in the JIT, a method which can reportedly speed things
+up a fair bit.
