I suggest you start by sending a patchfile that shows what changes are
needed to the existing source base first.  Once that is approved, you can
probably just copy the TPF-specific stuff over to Manoj or Bill
(or anyone else with commit access) and they can begin committing it into
the repository.

The reason for this is that what we really care about is any adverse
effect it may have on other platforms, since we assume that you are
already testing it on TPF.  The rest can be reviewed after the commit.
