The following patch set is intended to add support for the Qualcomm Hexagon
architecture to the Linux kernel.

The Hexagon architecture is designed to deliver performance with low power
over a variety of applications.  It has features such as multithreading,
privilege levels, VLIW, and instructions geared toward efficient signal
processing.  The port of Linux for Hexagon runs under a hypervisor layer.

I realize we are not currently in a merge window, but I felt it would be best
to go ahead and send it out so that the community gets an ample chance to
review it.  This is a very large patch set, but we've tried to break it up
into functional pieces to make review easier.

These changes are available in patch form on the Code Aurora Forum:

and will also be available via git:

git:// hexagon

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.
