[riot-devel] Microsemi SmartFusion2 & RIOT

Dear List,

We'd like to enquire whether anyone is looking into deploying RIOT on
Microsemi SmartFusion2 based platforms?

In particular, we're looking at the SF2-STARTER-KIT designed around an
M2S050 device.

The fusion chip combines a Cortex-M3 & IGLOO2 FPGA...

The SF2 tool-chain enables graphical style device configuration
(peripherals [cortex&fpga], clocks, pin mapping, memory etc.) and
auto-generates a code library with CMSIS, a hardware abstraction layer and
comprehensive peripheral drivers.

Our thinking was, it would be very convenient to import this code base (at
least initially), perhaps under a vendor folder and have the recursive make
build system compile this as any other 3rd-party dependency - perhaps not
the pure RIOT-way of doing things?

Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
