From the outside it looks like there are indeed a whish to do so
but both m68k and m68knommu maintainers seems to be busy with other stuff.

Not that I can think of what is more important than to merge the two
architectures ;-)

If I get some spare time one day I have actually planned to try to
help a little - but that would require an active maintainer..

We just did the exercise with sparc/sparc64 unification and
if you forget the few times I broke sparc32 then it went well
with only limited problems.

One key factor why it went well was that patches were reviewed
and applied within a few days whch is why I stresses that the
maintainer needs spare time to support the effort.
