    Eh, I think the improvements in LLVM (VGPR spilling and machine scheduler) are much more important for performance and correctness than these changes to Mesa. Still, looking forwarding to benchmarks.

      Agreed those improvments in LLVM had to be announced, but Micheal missed to do that Contains more stability in the first place, but somehow performance too. Which can be seen for example in any unigine demos, but oilrush too and a little bit or (more?) probably in any(some?) other games.

      He, he, benchmarks needed

        Did they merge the LLVM branches in master? When did it happen?

            Guys are you running llvm from git/svn?

            I've tried today for the first time and I can't build a .deb package of llvm.
            Checkinstall is complaining about the number version which has to start with a number.

            I set --pkgversion in checkinstall, but something else is overriding that setting. Can you help me?

            I'm compiling LLVM in a chroot so I can't do a #make install.

                I'm running debian sid.

                But I prefer to have my own build so I can bisect and file bugs.

                  Why don't you use llvm apt repo on Debian Sid, it roughly gets updated twice per day... I used that most of the time

                    Yeah, this is my actual situation. I'm using those packages, but, you know, building yourself is more satisfying.
