This series lets me build and run an initramfs with the published toolchain,
after adding the patch 'unicore32: Add ocd console and qemu-defconfig
to support qemu simulator' as well to get console output. So feel free
to add

Tested-by: Guenter Roeck <>

to the series.

I have a couple of questions:

- After adding the patch 'unicore32: Add ocd console and qemu-defconfig
  to support qemu simulator', I only get console output, but no input.
  Is there a way (for example with a qemu command line option) to get
  input as well ?
- Is it possible to connect a console to a serial device in qemu (in other
  words to run the image in qemu without the ocd console patch) ?
- Is there a working description on how to create a toolchain for the _new_
  ABI ? Alternatively, would it be possible to publish such a toolchain ?

Thanks a lot,
