(This is a continuation of the LLVM micro conference from the morning)

The Linux Plumbers 2013 LLVM Microconferences is focusing on increasing the use of LLVM related technologies surrounding Linux.

Over the past year there has been a lot of progress in patching LLVM and Clang in order to be able to compile the Linux kernel. Over the same time period progress was made on building both the Linux kernel and Android userspace. Clang is also now distributed as part of the Android NDK. We now need to get patches accepted to support the use of clang/LLVM to build the Linux Kernel and more of the Android code base.

This microconference will gather interested parties from the Linux kernel, LLVM, and Android communities to plan the most expedient way to get support for using Clang upstream in the Linux kernel, Linux Distros and in Android.
