I will need to look at the list if PRs that are pending.
There are some PRs which I will never action,because they solve a problem for one individual but break things for everyone else.
I know there is @stevstrong's SPI PR but it slows down the SPI, last time I tried it, and speed decreases usually dont go down well with users even though there is a valid bug fix that causes the slowdown.
But as Victor is currently working on improved DMA for SPU, I was going to wait and do all the SPI changes at the same time.
So its likely I will only change the compiler switches and change to using nanolib at the weekend
