My point was about llvm in general, hence why I asked about llvmpipe and its future. I was aware of vadim's sb alternative, so llvm wasn't necessary for anything other than opencl. However I want aware that the reason for removing it was basically one of shifting of resources rather than inherent problems with llvm itself.

If llvm backend is buggy and slower for r600, then it's ok to me to hide this backend to users.
About the radeonsi llvm backend, do we have information about its optimality? Would radeonsi benefit from a new sb backend?
People want it, but most people are not GPU driver developers (or don't want to be). And those who are are too busy with other stuff.
