Does anyone have any experiance with the new Xilinx Virtex II Pro chip?
It is a million+ gate FPGA device with embedded 405GP cores on the die.

We've recently consolidated our MPC8260 and Virtex II fpgas into this
single chip, and I'm curious about getting linux up on it.

I know the dev kit comes with GNU software, but I was just curious if
anyone had any comments on it (good or otherwise).
