Only partly ease it: You'll soon realize that the source code lacks quite some
important parts and that there's no docs available for the MCU. You'll then
realize that _all_ TMS320-based players that are based on Linux seem to be
using the same Linux (and u-boot) version and code... (which most likely is
because they all seem to base their HW designs on the same one sold by the
same single company: Ingenient).
The good part is that once someone ports Rockbox to a single TMS320 player,
it'll be a lot easier to port it to the rest of them.
And since Neuros new generation of players is based on this MCU, getting
inspiration from their sources might be a suitable way forward for people
wanting to have a go at this.
Yeah, and using the rockbox-dev list instead of the users list ;-)
