    3: ## Unfinished Projects
    4: 
    5: ### x86 UEFI kernel loader
    6: Building this for x64 UEFI requires the `ms_abi` function attribute introduced in GCC 4.4 or so.
    7: This project uses Intel UEFI headers and some existing FreeBSD work.
    8: Needs more work and cleanup, also toolchain updates.
    9: Work has been done using the OVMF BIOS images for Qemu.
   10: 
   11: ### bcm47xx for evbmips
   12: Boots multiuser on NFS root, needs more work and cleanup.
   13: This project is on hold until there's a miniature userland that fits in 4-8MiB flash storage devices, on a flash-oriented file system.
   14: [[!template id=man name="bce" section="4"]] and [[!template id=man name="bwi" section="4"]] would need refactoring to be bus-independent.
   15: 
   16: ### Conexant PCI DTV driver
   17: I have some code for 23880-3 and 887 host interfaces.
   18: This type of hardware is hard to find freely available docs for.
   19: Tuner/demod drivers from Linux could be ported, but would still be GPLed.
   20: Probably better to keep these drivers in userland.
   21: 
   22: Should try to coordinate with what FreeBSD is doing: <http://wiki.freebsd.org/HDTV>.
   23: 
   24: ### Memory-mapped PCI config access on x86
   25: Still need to figure out how pcitag_t will work for a 3rd mode that can't be switched on until after ACPI is initialized.
   26: Existing code I have assumes that no tags are generated until mmconf is turned on, which is not a reasonable assumption to make.
   27: 
   28: ## Possible Projects
   29: ### AMD PowerNow/Cool'n'Quiet states loaded from ACPI tables
