fix below error:
/include/arm_neon.h:31:2: error: #error "NEON intrinsics not available with the soft-float ABI. Please use -mfloat-abi=softfp or -mfloat-abi=hard"
31 | #error "NEON intrinsics not available with the soft-float ABI. Please use -mfloat-abi=softfp or -mfloat-abi=hard"

Neon is not supported by armv5, disable the simd extension build.
Drop this comment. Neon may be missing from other ISA levels too (i.e.
this fix is not specific to armv5).
Get it. Thanks.

Shouldn't this be checking for neon in TUNE_FEATURES rather than

TUNE_CCARGS_MFLOAT = "${@ bb.utils.contains('TUNE_FEATURES',
'callconvention-hard', 'hard', 'softfp', d) if
(d.getVar('TUNE_CCARGS_MFPU') != '') else '' }"

TUNE_CCARGS .= "${@ ' -mfloat-abi=${TUNE_CCARGS_MFLOAT}' if
(d.getVar('TUNE_CCARGS_MFLOAT') != '') else ''}"

There are condition that neon is not in TUNE_FEATURES, but vfp is in it.
so TUNE_CCARGS may append -mfloat-abi=softfp, then

simd module here can be compiled sucessfully.
The SIMD code can only be used on targets which support neon. There
may be other cases where the code can be compiled but if it can never
be used at run time it's not very useful.

It should also probably be conditional on the _arm
over-ride since neon will be missing from
TUNE_CCARGS_MFPU/TUNE_FEATURES for other architectures.Since big
endian ARM doesn't use the _arm over-ride you will also need a
duplicate line with the same logic with the _armeb override too. See
the lines below which do the equivalent for _powerpc / _powerpc64 as a
ok. thanks.
