Leon is LGPL sparc v8 processor that often (including wd mybook I'm playing with) accompany arm cpu as a coprocessor for heavy integer or fp operations like ipsec.

see http://www.leox.org/about.html

WD MyBook use LEON to handle a power button and help NIC. I don't need the power button and have to initialize NIC very early on boot - so I compile out of kernel both power button and Leon depended NIC driver and looking for guidelines how to load Leon with something useful.
