I would also like to see the ep93xx support merged into CVS.

I've tried to keep my local copy of the port current with the latest
CVS and have updated various pieces of the Cirrus port.  If there
is anything I can do to help let me know.

Is it possible for Cirrus to just release all rights to the port then
have someone else pick it up and get a copyright assignment to the FSF?
