    LLVM has a mergefunc optimization pass. It's not currently enabled by default in Clang (due to lack of research into the compile-time vs. size reduction trade-off), but it's possible to flip it on.
  2. BTW, ÁBlock (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock)...

    BTW, ÁBlock is nicer than Adblock. It's faster, lighter and zaps more of the requests to load advertisements rather than just hiding them.
  3. The problem is that it's incompatible with the...

    The problem is that it's incompatible with the Linux kernel license, so it's never going to be included upstream. The reality of out-of-tree kernel modules is that they need to play catch-up on API...

    I think you're placing the blame on the browser for driver problems. In my experience, the Nvidia driver doesn't handle concurrent OpenGL usage from multiple applications well. For example, the...

    Clang implements the language features required for C11 threads like _Thread_local, atomics and the memory model. The rest is up to the C standard library implementation but it's trivial to implement...

    Neither Clang and GCC includes an implementation of the C standard library. Both compilers support the C11 / C++11 memory model including the atomic operations. It's not up to them to provide the...

    It does have VAAPI but it's disabled in a non-ChromeOS build because they don't want to officially support it across lots of kernel versions / hardware.
  8. KMSCON can do that, and it was written by the...

    KMSCON can do that, and it was written by the same person who is working on console support in systemd. They would need to add optional dependencies that are quite heavy though.
  9. It's not based on bundles. It doesn't accomplish...

    It's not based on bundles. It doesn't accomplish the purely functional goal by losing any dependency sharing between packages. It does it by putting a hash of the dependency versions (recursively) /...

    Chrome doesn't offer additional features over Chromium beyond a more colourful logo. It ships with the Flash and PDF plugins, but these can also be used with Chromium. The PDF plugin is now...

    A common argument raised against doing it is that the output would be incomprehensible. Since there are plenty of mirrors providing 10-20MB/s throughout, it's unlikely to receive much attention. If...

    GNOME is only using CSS as the syntax for writing themes, it doesn't have the same performance characteristics as a web browser with the DOM. It's not a performance issue for GTK+ and doesn't benefit...

    Intel contributes to quite a few open-source projects, and that includes being one of the top contributors to the Linux kernel. I'm not sure what kind of mental gymnastics you're doing to classify...

    systemd-networkd was written with containers and servers as the main initial use cases, not embedded systems or desktops. In a container, the performance improvement over the existing Linux dhcp...

    There were a couple trolls which is to be expected in a phoronix thread about anything. It's quite silly to attribute it to a conspiracy involving Microsoft.

    Both grsecurity's RBAC and AppArmor use path-based policies, and in both cases policies can be created by the packagers. On top of that, both grsecurity and AppArmor support learning modes. The...

    It is a blacklist-based shortcut because it's doing exactly that (blacklisting) and is simply a shortcut for something previously possible by using ReadOnlyDirectories directly. If the service is...

    The feature will be useful when making / inaccessible and whitelisting directory trees as readable or readable+writable works. A blacklist is a really bad way of approaching this. It's intended to...
