At what speed? The SH-based Archoses are only 11-12 MHz with about one cycle
per instruction so I would guess that a reasonably clocked 8051 would reach
about the same performance.
I assume this baby uses 16 bit ints in the compiler? The TCC730 of Archo Gmini
is also a platform that does that so we will have Rockbox 16/32 (int/long) bit
I can think of any major obstacles that would prevent Rockbox from running on
such a platform.
BTW, you'll also gain lots of data/code if you're not using a (graphical)
