Aaargh. You don't happen to be refering to the Cirrus Logic macrocell
of the Psion Series *5*?
The 5mx is an ARM 710 T. I don't know anything about the Revo or
5mxPro etc. The Series 7 is based on a SA core, but it has the same
serial port interface as the 5mx (which is accessed through direct
"memory" IO with IRQ notification AFAICS).
We might as well follow the linux crew and call it the psionw.
