I'm probably jumping the gun as they have only recently been announced
but what support is available for the RMI XLR Family of Thread
Processors?

The RMI web site is http://www.razamicroelectronics.com.  The following
snippets have been lifted from documents available from that web site:

    "XLR-enhanced 64-bit MIPS64 ISA" [1].

    "an operating system such as Linux requires no software changes to
    allow it to run as a multi-way SMP operation system on the XLR
    processor.  This allows software engineers to develop code while
    leveraging the same standard tool chains and operating systems that
    have been use in the past development efforts" [2].

    "ArizonaATX-I is initially enabled by two standard operating systems
    including 32-bit Linux 2.6 with complete support for the XLR
    processor.  Full source code is available and SMP support is
    standard.  Customers will have early access to RMI's kernel
    improvements" [3].
