    Phoronix: LLVM 9.0 Feature Work Is Over While LLVM 10.0 Enters Development

    Feature work is over on LLVM 9.0 as the next release for this widely-used compiler stack ranging from the AMDGPU shader compiler back-end to the many CPU targets and other innovative use-cases for this open-source compiler infrastructure...

    Hasn't asm-goto landed in both LLVM and Clang now, meaning that LLVM/Clang can compile x86 linux kernels? I thought it may be in LLVM 9.

    LLVM:
    Clang:

      Feels good that I no longer have to care now that I'm using mesa with ACO instead of LLVM.

        You're still using LLVM, too.

          But ACO can only compile fragment and vertex shaders, and offloads the rest to LLVM...

              Starting to build llvm-git and mesa-git.. too bad it will take about a day until I will have something

                I know LLVM is still needed to build and used for "something", but I think it is trivial and the large majority of the work is now done by ACO is it not? If this is true, it basically means I don't care about what happens in LLVM anymore.

                  don't know about llvm, but mesa goes quick, in about 20 Minutes i get all needed packages for amd64 and x86 (on Ryzen5 with 8GB RAM)., without preparing the build environment first, of course

                  I use llv-9~snapshot from llvm.org, don't know why you should not ...

                    Yes. Well, the situation is a bit different. I am generating rpms for fedora copr. Perhaps I was exagerating a bit, but the resources are limited. I think only a cpu core at disposal, so it takes about 8 hours per llvm and another 8 for clang.. etc. That is ok. I have time
