hc11/12 port extension to s12x

(First post to gcc mailing list)

I have been making use of the Freescale (Motorola) HC11/12 functionality
within gcc and binutils on the 9S12C64 target. 

I plan to extend gcc to cover the newer S12X CPU as the existing
compiler only utilises the S12 subset. Is anyone working on this

Hopefully I will be working on this with a colleague Ken Culver and we
would aim to have some code by the middle of the year. I contacted the
existing maintainer of the HC11/12 port Stephane Carrez, but he does not
have the time to actively work on it.
Additionally I have extended binutils-2.18 to cope with S12X and the
XGATE co-processor used in chips like the 9S12XD and 9S12XE families. My
code does appear to work but needs a good cleanup and more testing
before it is ready for submission.

I have attempted to build gcc-4.3.0 with --target=m6812-elf and using
plain binutils-2.18 built with the same target, prefix and program
prefix as gcc, however gcc fails:
../../../gcc-4.3.0/libgcc/../gcc/libgcc2.c: In function â__negdi2â:
../../../gcc-4.3.0/libgcc/../gcc/libgcc2.c:80: internal compiler error:
Segmentation fault

I believe I have attempted to build it correctly as the same configure
options passed to a gcc-3.3.6 (with Stephane Carrez's patches applied)
builds ok.

My host compiler reports:
[jsm@jsm2 ~]$ gcc -v
