Hi Matthias,

I was following [1] a bit and fell over your original posting in [2].

I wrote some early documentation (wiki) and tested/booted a
clang-compiled kernel on x86-64 bare metal.
The project was called "lll-project" these days.
The followup - LLVMlinux project - seems to be somehow dead?

After reading your posting, I got really excited and had a quick look
over the Linux v4.9.y-LTS patch-stack with additional stuff:

$ git fetch https://chromium.googlesource.com/chromiumos/third_party/kernel
refs/sandbox/mka/llvm/v4.9_ext
$ git checkout -b llvm_v4.9_ext FETCH_HEAD

I like your commit subjects and messages.

Before starting to compile I have some questions, I hope you can answer them.

[ CLANG-VERSION ]

Here on Debian/testing (will get Version 10 with codename "buster")
AMD64 I have the choice of installing CLANG v4.0.1, v5.0.1 and v6.0.0.
As you point out LLVM/CLANG v5.0 or higher are a good and faster
choice than v4.0.
Using CLANG >= 5.0 makes the *CLANG* patch-series obsolete?

[ REFRESH PATCH-STACK ]

What about the *FROMGIT* and *CUSTOM* patch-series?
Are they in upstream in the meantime?
If yes, will you refresh this v4.9.y-LTS patch-stack?

[ ASM-GOTO ]

Foremore, I have seen you have a "refs/sandbox/mka/llvm/v4.14" Git branch.
Linux v4.14 is also an LTS release.
After Linux v4.9 "asm-goto" support was added which is GCC specific.
Is there a workaround to compile Linux-kernel with any CLANG version?
You happen to know the status in LLVM upstream?

[ X86-EFLAGS/IF ]

AFAICS, I remember an EFLAGS/IF problem on X86 and interrupt handling.
You happen to know if this is fixed in LLVM upstream?
Some LLVM developers were interested in fixing this.
Can you comment on this, JF (we had some email conversation in private in 2016)?

I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,
- Sedat -
