RE: Ecos port to RVDS + new board port

Thanks for the link. Will get back to you on it.

 Yes that was a tricky one. We used a mix of manual (for OS) + automatic

That sounds very interesting indeed. Lots of people have asked about
and we've usually considered it too difficult. How did you deal with 
constructor priority ordering? It'll certainly be an interesting set of

We've got a write-up here, and it's probably not worth me repeating it

But we should probably talk in more detail about the copyright 
assignment... we've talked to people in Intel before who have had some 
difficulty in persuading the Intel legal department to assign copyright.

I'd be interested to know if you have any perspective on this. There may

though, but we could make an exemption for a well-known reputable
like Intel.
