Maybe what we need is "occarm" for the Raspberry PI?
That would be a great thing to have. Of course the R-Pi already has a
parallel processor in the form of the built-in GPU (in the Broadcom
chip). Unfortunately there is little scope for programming it directly.
Not exactly CSP-ready, but there are many important/interesting
massively-parallel tasks which could be explored. If Broadcom could be
persuaded to provide some low latency GPU-based FFT operations, and
maybe a few other vector-based arithmetic ops, I am sure a phase vocoder
could be got to run in real time on the R-Pi, with enough spare CPU to
do some interesting things (such as pitch shifting) with it.
