According to that table http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mer_(software_distribution) Sailfish OS doesn't use hardfp and thumb instructions.

Is it possible to use armv7tnhl? It could improve performance, right?

Sailfish uses armv7hl, so it does use hardfp, so table is missleading or you are missreading it.

Maybe that causes the confusion:

So only kernel is armv7l or what?

No, whole thing is hardfp.
