constant memory space.  Currently a static table is used and it demands
896 Bytes.  This is to much for systems with a small memory.

This file is deprecated.  See


We should consider to remove these files in the CVS HEAD.

BSPs that use the API to install exception handler code:

  o score603e
  o mpc8260ads
  o mbx8xx

It should be easy to modify them if the API changes.  I want to remove
the existing API and replace it with something that requires no non
constant memory.  It will allow the installation of exception handlers
based on the existing category infrastructure.
