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.
