ARM development is currently slow and mostly devoted to maintaining 
what's there. External contributions would be very welcome!

The simulator target (named ARM) should currently be in shape to execute 
the monitor and other rudimentary user-space applications. The XScale 
target is able to run on real hardware, but unfortunately only gets as 
far as early user-space startup.

This list is the right place for them. Alternatively, you can send them 
to me if you want someone to look over them first.

If you have further questions, I'd be happy to answer them!
