Ah, I bet I know what's happening.

We test for the presence of VFP by issuing an instruction to read
FPSID. If VFP is not present, this will raise an undefined instruction
exception, and we expect to head into the vfp_testing_entry code.

I bet Pogoplug, being an ARM11 MPCore platform, either raises an
exception here.

We probably need to also rework the code in vfp_init() as well to
register a temporary hook when reading the FPSID.

RMK's Patch system:
FTTP is here! 40Mbps down 10Mbps up. Decent connectivity at last!
