You can use Microsemis "DirectC" tool to build some kind of Flashpro Programmer 
for Linux. It is provided als C-Code
and is easily portable, so you get is easy ported on a Cortex-M for example. We 
have such an effort running on 
the F4-Discovery Board from ST. The programming file is loaded per UAB-UART and 
flashed into the ProAsic with 
the DirectC running in the Cortex MCU.
