I don't have any.
My first thought was to update to the last version with an
RTEMS appropriate license. Then let the project know that
we couldn't update to a newer version due to the license
We can't include pure GPL code in RTEMS proper.
Beyond that, I suppose we have to do some research on
options. Forking is one but that's not my first choice.
