Hear, hear! We do really need something that is specific to this hw and
avs_kernel, and that is known to work. Otherwise we're flailing about and not
sure what's causing problems (and resets).

I also second the request for some more information about the functions compiled
into the avs_kernel.out so that we can use (at least some of) them to access the
audio hardware, etc. without having to reverse engineer/guess the functions.

Hello world style audio and video access examples that compile and run with the
shipped avs_kernel would be great starting points for people who want to hack on
the DSP.
