Looks good to me so far.
I am still unsatisfied about the ARC situation.
If you use this branch of gcc:
https://github.com/foss-for-synopsys-dwc-arc-processors/gcc/tree/arc-4.8-tls

You get a working toolchain with TLS support and can use uClibc-git
or uClibc-ng 1.0.0 with NPTL.

best regards
 Waldemar
