I totally disagree : things are implemented the way they are today because old exception code was so broken and had so many feature in ifdefs (no more used and not even compiling e.g gcc272, ...) that modifying it for all platform was something I refused to do.

Now, I think motorolla_shared supports by itself more platform than you listed for old exception processing. And BTW, the same exception model is used on Ix86 and the code is shared. The problem was that the powerpc code and the old BSP were to different to unify anything.

And BTW do anything you want because I will no more use RTEMS on PPC. So make any modification you want provided you support them.
