2.11BSD on two RL02 drives? Probably not, but...

Oh, a USB PHY chip.  Yeah, that might be the way to go now that we're
not counting I/O pins.

Yeah, I know.  Partly it's a challenge and partly it's something I'd
like to have around for another project.

We've talked about a soft microcontroller, an actual microcontroller,
and just writing it in some sort of microcode.  Want to get the SD card
working first so Noel can start using the prototype board as an actual
storage device.

Xilinx Artix 7.  More specifically, we're using a ZTEX 2.13 FPGA module
for our prototyping.  Unless some good reason came up, I was thinking to
stick with the same FPGA.
