The V5 system treats the RISC5 processor as a black box. It is not aware
whether it is implemented as FPGA, as an ASIC or an emulator.

While there is LOLA, it will only output Verilog and there are no tools
in V5 to compile these to a bitstream of any FPGA model.

Also, the processor does not expose any way of altering (parts of) the
bitstream it is running from.

I hope that answers your questions.
