Did you try the above ?
I have pushed a patch into my contrib tree.

can you try that out and see if it helps with gcc 4.7
I had to manually apply the patch to poky/master.

The gcc-4.7 patch alone didn't fix the issue with not getting a bash prompt, which makes sense I guess, since the eglibc recipes also need to be modified to ensure that the soft-float libraries are also generated into the target root filesystem.

I'll now, make the necessary changes to eglibc-2.13, in poky/master, with gcc-4.7, and see if it works.

If it does, then I'll adapt the same solution for eglibc-2.15, eglibc-2.16, and gcc-4.6 recipes, and sent them across.

Best regards,
