Cool, welcome back!

Are you interested in glibc work only, or in other stuff too?

For example, I'm trying to keep a todo-list for myself at 

Overall I think we are in pretty good shape with the port,
but here is a small list where work would be helpful:

- gcc: Make gccgo work (still crashes)
- kernel/gdb: For core files written by kernel, gdb is reporting: BFD: Warning: /tmp/core.http.1655.ls3011.1465554447 is truncated: expected core file size >= 2187264, found: 2121728.
- kernel/glibc: Maybe implement real kernel VDSO support ? 
- gcc: _mcount can be optimized (smaller) by not subtracting offset
- gcc: put PLABELS into read-only section (gcc function pa_reloc_rw_mask() needs modification, see "section mismatches" mails) 

I'm currently mostly working on the qemu port which is doing great progress.
