Hi Jeff,

Indeed, we are in the process of upstreaming the glibc port for arc. However,  we hit a number of issues, one being this BZ, and other is the need to provide some ARC processor internals documentation. Once those items cleaned up, the arc glibc port will be public available upstream.

I totally agree, we also have an uClibc-ng port which, as far as I know, is fully upstream. If I may ask, how do you test the ARC toolchain, do you use Synopsys free nSIM simulator?

Thank you,
