Anyone ever used OpenCV with Zynq (ARM+FPGA)

We recently launched a low-cost robotics hardware platform and we're considering offering support for OpenCV (in addition to ROS). The platform is based on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 ARM-FPGA SoC, which definitely supports OpenCV. I was just curious if anyone had any first-hand experience as far as porting to/working with Zynq and what kind of effort level we should expect.

For reference, this is the project:

Thanks in advance! Ryan

Why do you expect any difficulties with OpenCV if you have Linux there already? From my experience, all you need is appropriate kernel, the rest just works. E.g. I was able to run Linux distro for BeagleBone on Zynq without much problems.

I think the idea is to use the FPGA (and other platform specifics) to increase performance?

Yes, particularly as it relates to the FPGA side of things (image processing acceleration, etc.).
