I still have some armv6 SIMD patches (a few 16bpp fast paths) not yet merged
into pixman. They were used on Nokia N810

As for the older ARM chips, I'm not quite sure if they are going to
be still used in new devices running more or less normal linux software
stack (including pixman). Of course if somebody is up to also optimizing
pixman for armv4 chips, it would be only encouraged I guess.
