Okay. I've just committed this as a sub-port to evbarm called "tsarm".
On-board and on-chip peripherals are mostly supported. There is work
still to be done:
*) watchdog on CPLD (watchdog on EP9302 is broken rev <=E0)
*) TS-5620 RTC daughter-card
*) envsys driver for temperature sensor
*) hardware flow control support for UART#1
*) RS485 tranceiver enable option on UART#2
*) HDLC on UART
*) block disk driver for onboard strataflash (?)
Also, this board has a port for a hitachi HD44780 compatible LCD display,
DIO, and analog-to-digital that I'm not sure what to do with in NetBSD.
Linux users have just been using the /dev/mem device from userspace for
using these features. It may make sense to come up with some API for
these general purpose digital IO and ADC and DAC devices.
