COMPILER --
The latest work hitting LLVM 6.0 is support for the Myriad ma2x8x class of processors and some other missing Myriad CPUs.

Myriad processors are developed by Movidius, which was acquired by Intel last September. These Myriad processors make use of the SPARC instruction set and are focused on computer vision and deep learning applications. The Myriad 2 processors can handle OpenCL though are largely designed as a high-end vision processing unit.

The few lines of code for finishing out the support is now in LLVM Git/SVN for the eventual LLVM 6.0 release.
