No, armv4 soft float should run on anything newer.  t is "thumb" support, 
which is another add-on instruction set (the way j is java).  If the system 
you're booting on it doesn't use thumb instructions, then it doesn't matter 
whether or not the processor supports them.

But if your current thing's working for you, good luck with it.
