gcc: update compiler architecture to match gcc-runtime (armv6, armv7a)
The gcc-runtime recipe builds the gcc libraries including libstdc++ with $TARGET_CC_ARCH flags, which include -march=FOO flags that affect whether atomic instructions are available. This causes an ABI incompatibility when the compiler by default generates code for less capable architectures. For example, gcc-runtime libraries on a Cortex-A8 are built with a different C++11/C++14 mutex implementation than is used code compiled outside OE and without architecture-specific flags. This commit fixes the problem specifically for ABI issues related to atomic instructions available in ARMV6 and subsequent architectures. Other ABI incompatibilities may remain in other architectures. See: Signed-off-by: Peter A. Bigot <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
