I recently attempted to get FreeRTOS running on a SiLabs 8051 board, using SDCC-2.9.0.  I didn’t have much luck.  I understand that earlier versions of SDCC worked better.

I don’t know how to generate the tab-delimited file you mention, but SDCC includes an 8051 simulator that – I imagine – would be able to run a FreeRTOS program if you could get it compiled.  The simulator is called uCSim.  I don’t know the exact relationship between the SDCC project and the simulator developers, but you can find more information at either:
