That particular bit of code has been added since it was last built for
arm. Our architecture can do 64bit accesses so we implement readq.
Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a sane way to conditionalize
code for architectures that have or don't have readq, so I suspect
I'll have to just remove that branch of the if statement for now.

Our architecture is not merged into mainline yet (although I am
working on that). I don't have an lpc313x board but I would be happy
to work on this code with anyone who does.
