Hi Svante,

thanks for your reply. I would really love to hear something more about 
your project. Could you give me some pointers and/or send me some of your 
papers? And yes, the source code could would sure be very helpful to me.
Right now I am going very slowly about this, any sort of external input 
would certainly help me a lot.
The processor I am trying to port to is LX, a processor mostly for 
embedded devices, designed by HP and ST.

Thanks again,

The jit framework was not constructed for VLIW architectures so I've done some workaround solutions. If Kaffe is to be ported to a number of VLIW architectures someone should make the jit compiler framework more general to faciliate this.
