Note that our intention is to push our RTEMS-4.10 patch-set
into the main RTEMS tree, so that the difference between the
Aeroflex-Gaisler and trees is minimal (or none).
We will still maintain our integrated tool-chain (RCC) but
the RTEMS kernel should track The syncing should
start within a few weeks, work-load permitting, and show up
