Coldfire questions

I downloaded this coldfire-0.3.0 simulator and tried it out. I got  
one of the standard uClinux ports to run on it, so my setup works.
Next, I built the RTEMS 4.6.2 mcf5206elite BSP to try it with the  
"lite-5206e" simulator configuration. It looks like the simulator  
download command is assuming a certain memory address for the  
download ( DL ) command. It wants to load the code at 0x10000, but  
the RTEMS BSP is targeting the RAM for 0x30000000. ( which is  the  
correct range for the real board )
To make it work, I think we would have to tweak the simulator to load  
the code to the correct memory range.

I think I missed this, but does the SkyEye simulator support the  
coldfire architecture?
