Hi Armin,

you seem to have added the the directory in the topic to the LinuxPPC
trees.  Unfortunately they have a license consitency that basically
makes them illegal to distribute, they claim to be under GPL but have
the following notice:

*     Xilinx products are not intended for use in life support appliances,
*     devices, or systems. Use in such applications are expressly prohibited.

Could you please contact Xilinc to clarify the license and/or remove
those files from the tree?  Thanks.
