    Yeah, I figured that was the case. Hopefully the LLVM guys go for your idea of at least adding a staging area for LLVM, and hopefully they pull your R600 back-end into master sooner rather than later.

    So I've noticed. I was out of town this weekend, and I was focused this morning on trying to get R600g+LLVM+GLAMOR running on my machine, but after that I'll be attempting to do a fresh build of r600+clover.

The list is not complete, and I'll keep adding more tasks as I think of them.
    I'll take a look later this evening. My wife will be out of town most of the week, and I might need something to do

    I'm thinking of either trying to help out with this work, or possibly contributing to the piglit OpenCL project that someone was doing for EVoC (without stepping on their toes too much, hopefully).

    I sent you an email with a few questions. Doubt this is going to work but anyway.
