lwsync is part of the ISA and Freescale did not fully implement the

Freescale or someone needs to implement a patch to target the
Freescale non-compliant processors.
It seems with -mcpu=8540 and -mcpu=8548 you get sync instead of lwsync:
/* E500 cores only support plain "sync", not lwsync.  */
#define TARGET_NO_LWSYNC (rs6000_cpu == PROCESSOR_PPC8540 \
                           || rs6000_cpu == PROCESSOR_PPC8548)
The question is if all the CPUs you're using are these 2, or if you use some
others that might not be superset of those.


We tried using e500, but on Freescale t1042 there was another instruction, evstdd instruction which caused a fault. Andrii did the testing, he can address it better than I can.
