At least for fat builds, it might still make sense to also add an explicit 

  .fpu neon

to neon assembly files. To handle the case that we don't want the
compiler to emit any neon instructions, but will still want to use neon
in assembly files which are used at runtime only if the fat machinery
thinks the processor supports it.
