Hi,

I've been working on updating this backend to work in the current GCC
tree; it's not working yet, but I'd appreciate any comments on the
current changes I've made, which can be browsed via gitweb at
http://git.etherboot.org/?p=people/dverkamp/gcc.git

I've also heard that someone else is working on a backend for i8086, but
I couldn't find any references to this in the mailing list archives.
