It shouldn't.  I was thinking about how most people are misusing their
toolchain and think that if QEMU runs correctly some code, it should
run on the target.  In that particular case, that will fail :-)  For instance
LDM with PC used as procedure return does not behave the same
in v4T and v5 IIRC.
