Hi Miguel,
Excellent work! If you are up for traveling, consider going to the upcoming BLIS workshop in Austin. PM me if you want an intro to Robert van de Geijn.
Thanks,
Andreas

Good news.
The code is released under Mozilla 2.0 license.
It is not perfectly "polished" (there may be some unused files included, and you'll find many comments and variable names in Spanish, among other things), but it works (at least here... hope to hear about other people testing it).

The link to GitHub is here:

https://github.com/mtasende/BLAS_for_Parallella

IMPORTANT NOTE: Most of the use cases require running 2 processes on the Linux host. That is explained in the README.txt, but it is something different from a regular code, and easy to forget.
