That's how you configure binutils, gcc, gdb and linux for the specific
Tensilica processor. In short it's a number of *.h/*.c files generated
by Tensilica tools as a by-product of processor core instantiation.
They provide various processor-specific #defines and functions.

Stock binutils, gcc and gdb are configured with the so-called 'FSF'

What's strange with it is that overlay corresponds to a specific
processor core configuration, it shouldn't change over time: if it
does, it should be another overlay, for another processor core.

And binutils/gcc and linux should be configured with one overlay,
which is now broken.
