No Tridge anbd Paulus did the linux port to the AP1000+, it is in the 2.0.*
(and maybe 2.2.*) source tree arch dir.

We have since decomissioned the AP1000 and AP1000+, the AP3000 is still in
use here, though it differs to the 1000 a fair bit.

The VP330 is a vector processing machine (large numbe rof big vector
registers) quite a cool machine, it is situated over in ANUSF.
