As far as I know , it does not parse SVD ,But it should not be that
difficult to add.
We could take the SVD parsing from your code . In the RFC i have
posted I parse for detailed timing and other VSDB blocks.
Also the parsing should be based on the extension type for  multiple
128 byte blocks.

Thanks and regards,
