    Phoronix: LLVM Clang Should Be Able To Build Linux 5.9 x86 32-bit Kernels

    With LLVM Clang 9 and Linux 5.3 the mainline kernel can be built following a years-long effort to be able to build the mainline Linux x86_64 kernel with Clang rather than GCC, which followed the AArch64 efforts in a similar achievement. Now with Linux 5.9 coming later this year, the i386 / 32-bit x86 mainline kernel will also now be capable of building under Clang...

    While I do not personally expect to ever need to build a x86 32-bit kernel again (although I do know some people who will likely be forced to do so for a very long time), it is good that the code base is getting freed from the last vestiges of compiler mono-culture (and as the patches explain, the subtlety different ways that the compilers do semantic analysis).
