Yes...but there is growing interest to plant linux on it. ARM has made
available some (preliminary) kernel patches on its linux-stable repository.

Now concerning buildroot - if i know that gcc4.4.x, binutils 2.19.x
and uclibc 0.9.30 support cortex-m3 architecture, then alongwith the
attached patch should not i be able to use buildroot to build a shiny
new cortex-m3 toolchain ? Or is there something else to it that i
am missing ?

Please let me know.
