LLVM's 64-bit ARM Back-End Is Almost Merged With Apple's Code

Back in March Apple open-sourced their 64-bit LLVM compiler back-end (ARM64) but by the time that was done there was already a 64-bit ARM back-end (AArch64) present within mainline LLVM that was created by other ARM stakeholders. For the past several weeks, all of the LLVM developers have been working on converting towards a single LLVM 64-bit ARM back-end. In the days ahead, that work should be complete.
