This will grow the set of programs that could execute, but there will still be limitations. In particular, there can be no packets which means the C library won’t work .

Few years ago Luc Michel added the TMS320C6x. The original git repository is down, I saved a copy: https://github.com/philmd/qemu/commit/44a32515d Last time I checked I had it rebased on QEMU 2.8. I wonder if rev.ng flex/bison generator as it would also work with this architecture (obviously I mean with the VLIW 'backend' logic, not the Hexagon 'frontend'). Regards, Phil.
