Support for the MSP430 X-architecture is missing. As for example, the 54xx devices are equipped with mor than 64k of flash memory, it's desireable to use that space for code.
As for the MSP430X branch of the gcc3, it would be nice to have this __attribute__((far)) construct directing the compiler to generate correct CALLA, RETA, etc. instructions.

    This is actually a very high priority. I'm working with TI and have gotten basic information that will help make it easier to accomplish. The biggest problem will be that doing it cleanly may involve changes all the way back into binutils. As soon as I get hardware that has more than 64KB of flash I'll be expediting this.
