What kind of information do you need? Putting "math emulation" into Google gives a load of results. For anything other than embedded and old CPUs, math emulation should be totally unnecessary these days.
Well, from a cursory glance at Google, it appears that you will need to include math emulation for a MIPS processor. You still haven't said what you need this information for. If you want to know whether math emulation is necessary, the answer is apparently yes. If you need more detailed information, ask!
my 126.96.36.199 linux kernel gets stuck during the boot processor on my board (the encore m3 board fm alchemy with the au1500 processor), at the point where it has mounted the NFS and has freed memory -- it cannot for some reason open the initial console--- i tried appending init=/bin/busybox to the boot args too but get the same problem, so m trying to eliminate any higher level probs such as whether math emulation is present or not..
