Nitpick: "designed" the ARM controller???

I have a parameterized VHDL module that I've used in **dozens** of designs 
on Altera silicon. It'll synthesize - but not work - on Xilinx devices for 
smaller parameters. For larger parameters, it won't even synthesize, just 
sits there for literally hours trying to build.

So I'd take that claim with a grain of salt...
