newlib missing C library functions

Hi

 

I'm using newlib with an imxrt1050.

 

The SDK provides various different flavours of newlib (nano, semihost etc) for the platform I am using but it has missing standard 'C' functions such as time and clock. There's also a random number generator hardware on-chip and I would have expected this to have been hooked into std:random_device. There are probably lots of other examples of missing hooks that I would have expected to have been supported in this library for SOC?

 

Maybe there's a list somewhere of the functions that are supported or even a document explaining how to properly get these hooks? I have actually wrapped the time function and called the appropriate board function to read the RTC, so it is possible.
