I don't see a reason why it shouldn't work - there's even one
supported board using a 440 - but I haven't done it myself.

Check examples/hello_world.c which compiles into a standalone
application ready to run from U-Boot.


Or go for generality ... Add a programming language for extensibility
and write part of the program in that language.
