    Phoronix: Asm-goto Support Added To LLVM, Helping Out Clang'ing Kernel Efforts

    LLVM has merged its support finally for supporting "asm goto" with this inline Assembly support needed for building the Linux x86/x86_64 kernel...

    Still pretty much work to do https://github.com/ClangBuiltLinux/linux/issues

      We know that 88 issues is one less as it includes the aformentioned asm-goto as an open issue. See page 4.

        As long as the Kernel is still built with both GCC and Clang things will improve, however building Chromium with GCC these days is near impossible, Google no longer tests it, so it breaks often

          Last time I checked, atleast debian and ubuntu build Chromium (and pretty much everything else) with gcc.

            4 pages of open issues from 15 pages of issues opened in the past year, 11 pages closed, it's very active

              It only took this shit-tier compiler 8 years to add this important feature.

                In addition, I remember that Suse also does build Chromium with GCC. It would also be a great test case for GCC's LTO+PGO implementation on a big code base with a huge user base. So any fruits of this labour would be very well received, too. At least that's why I tried to lobby hubicka to look into Chromium as well after his work is finished on Firefox. No promises were given though. But there still is a chance that we will see some interesting compiler benchmarks and optimization work coming out of this for Chromium in the future.
