No work on that done here.

Perhaps revive the discussion. Also I think there will be no positive
outcome. But think about long term device support with the recent bad TI
history of dropping microcontroller parts on short notice. There were also
rumors that TI will dropp microcontrollers at all...

Otherwise did you have a look at the libopencm3 headers? If they fit, they
could be less pain...
