"hardfloat".  A different memory handling (as I understand it) possible 
in ARMv7 which supposedly gives a general boost of up to 30 percent.

Unfortunately armhf cannot peacefully coexist with armel (little-endian 
"classic" arm) as can i386 code on amd64. it requires everything to be 
compiled as armhf.

Debian do not yet officially support armhf, but an unofficial port exist 
which is slowly getting there.  More info here:
