  I am. I even made a fresh "git clone" to be sure I have the up to date
  pristine contents.
    It very difficult (verging on impossible) to develop/debug Coriolis,
  or any tool for that matter, if the test cases (in our case, netlists)
  moves under my feets ever so slightly.
    So I progress by leaps between Coriolis and soclayout :
    1. All others things constants, add features & debug Coriolis.
    2. At Coriolis constant, update to the latest soclayout.
    And when switching between 1 --> 2 I keep two seperate git
  repositories of soclayout (the old for 1. and the freshly cloned
  for 2). So I can port one by one with checking every changes I
  made in soclayout.

  In experiment9, we now also have three flavors :
    1. experiment9/  : classic symbolic with Nsxlib.
    2. experiment9/freepdk_c4m45/ : FlexLib on FreePDK45.
    3. experiment9/tsmc_c180/ : Flexlib on TSMC 180nm.

  I have used Yosys 0.9 git 049e3abf9baf795e69b9ecb9c4f19de6131f8418.

  And got :
    1. wrappll wrap_pll_clk_sel_i only "half connected" (bit 1 stuck
       to zero in the BLIF file).
    3. Exact same error as for 1.
    2. Yosys do not complete :

  What am I missing ?
