It could be worth splitting this task into core CPU work and writing
drivers for peripheral devices.

OpenCores drivers could be used by OpenRISC, Mico32, NetBSD/evbarm on
the TS7300 or even in a PCI FPGA card.

The Xilinx drivers would be needed by any port to MicroBlaze and by
a port to the Zynq (arm) FPGAs.
