    Phoronix: MIR JIT Aiming For First Release Later This Year By Red Hat Developer

    Vladimir Makarov of Red Hat spoke at this week's Linux Plumbers Conference during the GNU Tools Track on lightweight JIT compilers and the effectiveness (or not) of GCC's JIT implementation as well as LLVM's JIT in the context of just-in-time support for Ruby. But following those shortcomings with GCC/LLVM JIT, he's been working on MIR as a lightweight JIT compiler...

          "It's called, Medium Internal Representation, or MIR"

            How many "MIR"s do we have now?

            Rust's MIR, mid-level IR
            Ubuntu/Canonical 's MIR
            Red-hat's MIR

            I know there is 4th one, but can't remember right now

              I think there is a "In Soviet Russia" MIR joke there somewhere
