But in the snapshot-2015123115, the SPARC experimental choice was been get rid of from Kconfig of Fiasco kernel.

For me it's still there (with INCLUDE_SPARC).

I'm afraid there's no such list.

I'd estimate for someone knowing Sparc in this low-level area this is
fair amount of work, maybe 3 month? But probably also depends on the
workload that should be run.
