Your proposal is about something in the deep bowels of RTEMS so there isn't
much out there that will help.
With that said, I suggest:
+ loading tools for sparc and powerpc.
+ Build the BSPs sis and psim with all tests enabled
+ Run all tests -- especially tmtests
+ Verify test results
+ Read RTEMS source code.. grep for occurences and begin
to make a list of if it stays struct timespec or changes to
the new class.
If tests do not behave correctly, we will need to resolve things and
possibly cut a snapshot. so all GSOC students have a baseline
You need to verify you have a baseline environment at this point and
baseline times in a spreadsheet.
I should be able to help by providing test run logs for those BSPs
for 4.7 and 4.8 branches.
So have a nice weekend. I probably won't answer email again much
