Thanks a lot for coming back so quickly with an updated patch and
clarification about SuperH support. That's really nice!

A few questions/comments below, though.

Not your fault, but we should probably try to use BR2_ENDIAN here, in
order to have the big/little endian list of architectures in a common
location and not duplicated here in JFFS2. But that's a separate
matter, and should be fixed in a separate patch.

Just curious, as I have never used Buildroot to build a toolchain for
non-MMU platforms (only used pre-built Blackfin toolchains so far). How
does this elf2flt thing fits into the toolchain build process ?

Instead of patching this config.sub file, wouldn't it be possible to
use the one we have in package/gnuconfig/ ? Or, put it differently, is
there an upstream location for elf2flt we could use instead of having
its source code directly into the Buildroot tree ?
