Well, I was thinking about it and maybe if we want to reach ASAP this
target, we can adapt the opencl implementation to work with parallella (the
main problem will be the memory in each core) and also we can use the CPU
to raise the mining power (there an ARM litecoin implementation).

Otherwise I'll need to implement from scratch a Parallela driver for
cgminer.

About the first two point I'm working on it and I will have finished it by
Monday.
