Create a Linux kernel driver to program and debug the Lattice MachXO2 used as routing fabrics in the AXIOM Beta.
Currently the both MachXO2 are 'programmed' with a python script which takes some time and doesn't allow easy update and development for those relatively important FPGAs. A Linux kernel driver would not just speed up things but also allow to test and even debug new code easily.
- Implement some kind of 'upload' interface (JTAG, I2C, SPI)
- Implement a debug interface (probably JTAG) to interface OpenOCD
- Lattice FPGA Know-How
- Linux Kernel Know-How
