It looks like an oversight when checking in this change:

2009-06-17  Michael Eager <...>

        * rs6000/ Add xilinx support.
        * rs6000/xil-crt0.s: New crt0 file for powerpc-xilinx-eabi.
        * rs6000/xilinx.ld: New file.
        * rs6000/xilinx440.ld: Ditto. refered to xil-exit.c, but it was neither checked in,
nor even mentioned in the ChangeLog.

Michael, what's wrong, the reference to xil-exit.c or
the fact that the file is missing?
