Create an x86_64 BSP

Mentors: TBD.

Students: TBD.

Status: Uninitiated.

Introduction: This project involves the creation of an x86_64 BSP for RTEMS that would allow for installing on an OTS PC, x86 dev boards and emulated in popular emulation software.

Goal: To have a functioning x86_64 BSP that will boot on OTS hardware and emulate fully in any x86 emulator. Extended goals would include running RTEMS as a process in the build platform and peripheral support.

Requirements: Knowledge of x86_64 ASM, C Programming language.

Resources: Current RTEMS developers. Do not reinvent the wheel and use existing code instead, e.g. from FreeBSD.
