No.  But as a first pass you should still be able to skip that
step in V2.  Romcc generates assembly as an intermediate step.

Since the point primarily is not a good E7501 port but to get
skeleton code for other Intel based ports.  I don't think it
will matter.

Of course maintenance will be a major pain if the code is not
translated into C.

Oh, BTW. One of the things I forgot and was one of the
motivators of my last romcc release is that I can now pass parameters
in and out of romcc compiled code.  So I should be able to clean
up the handling of BIST checking on the Opteron port.  Currently
it is an ugly hack in assembly so I don't know if I have pushed
that to the public tree or not.
