You are welcome. Now it would be even better if we could get the upstream code to work
with qemu. Which leads to the questions - is CRISv32 alive, and is there a chance
to get there ? Also, if CRISv10 is alive, is there any interest or even benefit to
maintain it in the latest kernel ? Because if not, we might as well drop v10 support
to simplify kernel maintenance.

Thanks,
Guenter
