Smaller numbers are bad.

I'm think Mike mentioned that ARM's hard-floating point is not used fully (vfp, or what was the other stuff - neon?).

I have been doing some testing on an Marvell Armada 510.
The thing that interests me is that the 510, has a vfp with good
double performance.
(So, I immediately thought that Lua is going to like this.)
The question I have is whether there is any Lua benchmarks which I
could use to compare Lua on a Armada 510 vs other processors?

One such benchmark is SciMark 2, ported to Lua by Mike Pall. It is
available here:

If ran under LuaJIT, it takes advantage of the FFI for greater efficiency.
