As of today the first ARC boards are indeed supported in OpenWRT.
These are nSIM (which is actually a simulated board) and AXS101
development board.

So your board is not supported yet.
Moreover since I don't have access to the mentioned board I barely
may add its support in OpenWRT myself. But I'll be happy to help you
with doing a port of OpenWRT for your board.

Please take a look at my most recent patch that adds support of ARC
boards: http://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt.git;a=commit;h=b9445c19461ce20e43a9dbee4d8c550b4ad97817

You may use that as a reference for preparing your port.
