Well, I read the libgloss code too, not just the comments.  Also 
double-checked against the QEMU implementations, the GDB manual, and 
some old internal mailing list discussion.  All of the nios2 and m68k 
semihosting code (both libgloss and QEMU) was originally written by me 
and other CodeSourcery folks, so I think we can license it under any 
terms we want.

Do these documentation files need copyright notices, too?  :-S  That 
didn't occur to me when I wrote them up.
