Conditional execution of NEON and VFP instructions

In ARM state, you can use a condition code to control the execution of VFP instructions. The instruction is executed conditionally, according to the status flags in the APSR, in exactly the same way as almost all other ARM instructions.

In ARM state, except for the instructions that are common to both VFP and NEON, you cannot use a condition code to control the execution of NEON instructions.

In Thumb state on a Thumb-2 processor, you can use an IT instruction to set condition codes on up to four following NEON or VFP instructions.
