Thanks Eero!

After that you usually need to go to the hardware/ell-i/stm32 and update:

  cd Arduino/hardware/ell-i/stm32
  git pull origin

Most of the time the ell-i-new branch points to some semi-random commit in the 
Runtime.git repo.  Perhaps you could take a habit of updating that yourself?

Very nice!  Thanks!  Good to know.

It would be good to get some more details of the missing directories and old 
Makefiles so that we can fix those.  But I guess they were caused by the 
initial git command checking out a wrong commit from the Runtime.git repo.

I think it would be good if more folks from us would join the Arduino 
developer's mailing list, perhaps contributing to the ongoing work on updating 
the toolchains.  I don't think we want to update the toolchain in our version 
of Arduino IDE, other than perhaps for making pull requests to the Arduino 
proper.  However, the toolchain update is such a big thing that they are doing 
it separately anyway.

AFAIK, Asif is still working on that.  As discussed earlier, we need a separate 
copy of the Linux linker script, with those symbols defined in the same way 
they are defined in variants/ellduino/ld/flash.ld for the Ellduino board.
