Make gcc default to ARMv7and Thumb2 on the ARM architecture

For this, we should also collect the list of bugs (in addition to build
failures) which we believe to be related to Thumb2 --- I think this matches
what I've been using the "armv7" tag for, if everyone follows this
Reviewing those will help give as a more complete picture of the health of
the T2 migration.
Other than the common packages which will get a heavy focus anyway, it could
be a good idea to come up with a list of packages which we think are likely
to show problems and which we should attempt to build and test up-front
without waiting for them to be rebuilt naturally --- maybe something like
a few huge packages: things like
some packages with interpreters:
* perl (I already have a successful build of 5.10.0-24ubuntu4, and the
build-time tests seemed to run OK)
packages with known JITs
* some WebKit based browser
Does that sound practical?
The above choices are a bit arbitrary... does anyone have any better
Packages with comprehensive test suites would be worth building too.
