here I disagree with you. Setting up a proper toolchain for a new target
is non-trivial and Ralf definitively knows best how to do this. If
MicroBlaze _might_ get support, havng a proper toolchain ready is a benefit.

If somebody is interested to porting RTEMS to microblaze, this is one
step further to the goal.

Having a toolchain ready doesn't mean the whole port is done. And
developers should know the difference.
