That way the 68K side is free of some tasks (eg driving usb-ports) and just lets the linux-slave do the nasty work.
The idea here is to let the ARM also emulate the 68k chip, since that is a problem already solved, it does not require any licensing etc. - plus it lets the user pick whatever 68k CPU configuration he/she wants/needs - better for compatibility. So, all legacy chipset stuff on the FPGA (with its own SDRAM - aka chipmem), CPU and all "modern" stuff on the ARM (with its own 1GB DDR3 - aka fastram).
