I never mentioned glibc. Nor is it mentioned in the error message.
The library in question is "libgcc.a", where the compiler itself
(GCC) provides utility functions (like here divsi3 to perferm a
signed division operation).
I repeat: Your compiler libraries are built using hardware FP,
whereas u-boot uses software FP.
In other words: your toolchain is not configured as you expected.
