The EFM32 code already added core support for Cortex-M3 cores, under
the symbol CPU_V7M.  Rather than implementing a whole new set of
Cortex-M3 support alongside the existing code, please work with the
EFM32 maintainer (Uwe Kleine-König) to come up with a common set of
core changes that you can all agree on for Cortex-M3.

Please also try to be a little smarter with whom you're sending your
patches to, the Cc list looks to be excessively long - having soo many
recipients on your message is a good way to get your message rejected
by mailing lists as spam.

according to speedtest.net.
