Crossposting to Debian and upstream lists.

Apparently Debian has a patch that uses fixed point by default on armhf,
so I'm just echoing Luke's question here: Has anybody performed any
testing or benchmarks across armhf hardware, w r t fixed point vs
floating point resampling with speex and PulseAudio?

That patch has been superseded by this commit:


So, if you prefer a fixed-point resampler on armhf (or, for that matter,
on any other architecture), just compile speex with --enable-fixed-point

Well, this is a more of an "upstream default" question rather than a "why don't you recompile speex" question, and one where it might make sense to come up with something reasonable across the board; either by upstreaming "fixed point by default for armhf", or by Debian to drop its patch.

It does not look likely to me that PulseAudio upstream and Debian would correspond to so different machine/user scenarios so that a Debian specific patch would make sense here.
