We are using RTEMS on the Coldfire. The BSP is contained in My Right
Boot. You can find it here.

The 5272 is a 5207e core with extras such as ethernet so getting MRB to
run should not be hard. Once MRB runs RTEMS boots. Ypu will need a
driver for the ethernet for MRB and RTEMS. Feel free to contact me with
any specific questions.
