[ECOS] Testing, testing, testing

Jonathan Larmour has just completed the merging of Flash v2 support from
the flash_v2 branch into the CVS trunk. This has required significant
changes to RedBoot. Ref:

   http://ecos.sourceware.org/ml/ecos-patches/2008-11/msg00046.html

We intend to make the eCos 3.0 release in early December so please do
start testing the current public sources (including RedBoot builds)
against any targets that you may have to hand. Please use the new
toolchains based on GCC 4.3.2 for all testing. These toolchains are
packaged with the "20081107-sw" datestamp and are available for download
via your local sourceware.org mirror site or directly from:

   ftp://ecos.sourceware.org/pub/ecos/gnutools/

If you are using an ARM target, you will need to set
CYGBLD_GLOBAL_COMMAND_PREFIX to "arm-eabi" in your eCos configuration at
present. It may also be necessary to remove obsolete compilation flags
from CYGBLD_GLOBAL_CFLAGS. For example:

   -mno-short-load-words
   -fvtable-gc
   -finit-priority

Any problems should be filed as bug reports against eCos (version "CVS") at:

   http://bugs.ecos.sourceware.org

We would also appreciate reports on this mailing list if eCos is working
correctly on a specific target when built from current sources. If your
time is limited, even a report that the "tm_basic" and "heaptest" tests
are working correctly when built with the "default" template would be
helpful.

We are also concerned about validation on the SuperH architecture. Does
anyone have an SH board that is supported in the eCos public repository
and a little time to help in this way?
