In the last week I have received an offer from somebody who plans to
look into such a port. If you are interested in helping out, let me
know and I can put the two of you in touch.

eCos device driver support is still very limited, unfortunately. The
Cogent HAL package does contain some basic serial I/O facilities,
mainly for diagnostics and debugging purposes.
There has been one third party port of a TCP/IP stack to eCos. This
was done by EBS Inc, http://www.etcbin.com , and it is not an open
source product. I am sure that ports of other stacks will follow, but
I do not have any more details yet.
