Send a patch against the CVS head to me or file it as a PR.

Make sure that the code is at least GPL+RTEMS exception.  Public
domain or BSD license is OK.  You want to make sure that someone
linking with it is not forced to GPL their application.

Please add some information to the ARM BSPs section of the RTEMS
Wiki.   If there is a simulator for the GP32, please please
include information on getting it and running code on it.

Try to run the tmtests on it as well and capture the results.

That about covers it.  But ask questions.
