I am about to start work on what will, if I succeed, be the most difficult and complex software project I’ve ever undertaken – and that means, at the moment, I am wandering around rather lost, reading various online white papers and data sheets, consulting old text books (like this) and procrastinating through writing blogs.

The task is to write paging code for a more or less bare metal Microblaze FPGA system (or rather a Microblaze system hosted on an OVP simulator). With only a very limited semi-hosting version of Newlib available for system call type support, it is all very daunting.
