No, Linux on MIPS provides floating point emulation, and Debian is effectively
"hardfloat" as far as user space is concerned. I think that even the kernel
just assumes the presence of floating point instructions and allows them to
trap to the emulator (which is probably just some exception handling code).

Yes, it has an apparently conformant FPU.

This I wouldn't know.
