Hi Franck, Antony

Are you still interested in barebox support for NIOS2 and openrisc? If
not I would consider removing it. Background is that we are planning to
introduce green threads and implement pollers with them which makes
green threads rather mandatory. Green threads need a setjmp/longjmp
implementation that would have to be added for these architectures.

Keeping the architectures is no big deal normally, but I don't want to
add untested new functionality, also I don't want to implement things
that nobody uses, so if you are still interested it would be great if
you volunteer to implement setjmp/longjmp.
