The port itself worked well the last time I had a working
toolset and target hardware.  The problem is that the GNU tools
have required patches to work with the c3x/c4x targets.

I somehow doubt there are many users.  I do know that the project
we ported RTEMS for had great success using libchip drivers
and the performance was better than I had expected on the overall
port.

The big issue is the toolset.
