Notes for the Blackfin architecture port of Das U-Boot

 =========
 ! ABOUT !
 =========

<marketing blurb>
Blackfin Processors embody a new breed of 16/32-bit embedded processor, ideally
suited for products where a convergence of capabilities are necessary -
multi-format audio, video, voice and image processing; multi-mode baseband and
packet processing; control processing; and real-time security.  The Blackfin's
unique combination of software flexibility and scalability has gained it
widespread adoption in convergent applications.

The Blackfin processor is wholly developed by Analog Devices Inc.

All open source code for the Blackfin processors are being handled via our
