Default Linux (not uClinux) on Microblaze 7.0 w/MMU?

Now that Xilinx has released Microblaze 7.0 with an optional MMU (in
EDK 9.2), has anyone started working on a Linux port?

There's already a uClinux port to Microblaze with no MMU, but for
some applications it would be nice to run "normal" Linux.

I've heard word that some distro's may be working on supporting it,
but no specifics. It shouldn't be too difficult to take the non-MMU
version and add MMU capability.

Lynuxworks already claims to have a (MMU) linux-port to Microblaze.
http://www.lynuxworks.com/embedded-l...dded-linux.php

Appnote ug258 is a precompiled demo of Bluecat Linux (Microblaze
edition), for the Spartan3E Embedded Processing Kit (SP3E1600E.)
I tried it out, but since I couldn't really build/compile/test
my own applications on the embedded platform, it wasn't all
that useful. (Basically, from a user perspective, looking
through the RS232 port and ethernet-jack, it looks just like
the prelodaed-uclinux demo.)
