SiFive Freedom Uleashed SDK
This builds a complete RISC-V cross-compile toolchain for the SiFive Freedom Unleashed U500 SoC. It also builds a
bbl image for booting the Freedom Unleash development board.

Checkout this repository. Then you will need to checkout all of the linked submodules using:
git submodule update --recursive --init
This will take some time and require around 7GB of disk space. Some modules may fail because certain dependencies don't have the best git hosting. The only solution is to wait and try again later (or ask someone for a copy of that source repository).
Once the submodules are initialized, run
make and the complete toolchain and bbl image will be built. The completed build tree will consume about 14G of disk space.
Upgrading the BBL for booting the Freedom Unleashed dev board
Once the build of the SDK is complete, there will be a new bbl image under
work/bbl.bin. This can be copied to the first partition of the MicroSD card using the
