VFP vector mode

Usually the VFP core only works on a single register. However, many VFP arithmetic instructions can also operate on vectors of up to eight single-precision or four double-precision numbers, enabling Single Instruction Multiple Data (SIMD) parallelism.

In addition, the floating-point load and store instructions have multiple register forms, enabling vectors to be transferred to and from memory easily.


The use of VFP vector mode is deprecated.
