libffi and ARM support for Python

The latest version of libffi is supposed to support the ARM processor.


Has anyone taken this and folded into Python v2.5.2 so that we have support
for this?


I've tried but have run into a few issues:

1.	Needed to enable FFI_CLOSURES
2.	Added FFI_TRAMPOLINE_SIZE (set it to 32, not sure what this should
actually be)
3.	still missing ffi_prep_closure (it is not defined in arm/ffi.c)


Any ideas or added info would be appreciated.
