Yes, I'm willing to fix these, just need time. Shouldn't be that difficult.
You can get more details on RISC-V assembly reading RISC-V specs
(especially user-level spec) . For example/references, you may have
a look at the riscv-linux and/or seL4 ports [2, 3] (though, you've to
be aware of 64-bit vs 32-bit differences).
You shouldn't need to write lots of assembly code though.
Most ports have only the context switch and interrupt handling in Assembly
Language. Things like interrupt disable and other small accesses to special
registers can usually be done with inline assembly period use in line
assembly whenever possible and wrap it and a static inline function to make
it look more readable.
