This is not a surprise actually. There is no support for FP operations
in the Linux kernel. [Note that this is a design decision of the Linux
kernel; it has nothing to do with the ELDK or any other tool chain.]
Please move your calculations to user space instead.

its complexity often abstract away its essence.    - Fred Brooks, Jr.
