The main problem is that the sis code style that does not correspond to
the current gdb standards. Each patch required to change/rework original
sis code to gdb conventions. Also the change log provided with the
patches was deemed insufficient. It was rather pain-staking to merge the
first ~20 pathes and took many iterations with the gdb/sparc maintainer.
I also feel that the gdb maintainers would want us to use the built-in
simulator infrastructure more, rather than having a custom simulator
core in sis. I have been gathering strength to go for a couple of new
rounds with the gdb folks and try to submit the remaining ~10 patches. A
few of the patches are however rather large (leon2/3 support), and I am
not very optimistic on when (if ever) they will be accepted. I will do
my best ...
