Thank you for your reply. As far as I checked my device allows
the use of the ARM GIC interrupt controller. I will look into this 
and also that it is backward compatible with codes from ARM9 and ARM11
architectures. I will look into this.
Please keep us updated on all your additions to the ARM support.
Also, if this is not possible how may I keep track of the same?

Thank you.
