Done ? Final spurt ? - Compiling the Linux Kernel with clang on x86

*

One Line Summary

The LLVMLinux project upstreamed a lot of patches to the Linux Kernel (and LLVM) - are we done and what is left ?

Abstract

Going forward we need to get the last missing pieces into mainline so more developers can actually use it out of the box.
Unfortunately we’re not done yet for the Linux kernel and a lot of small issues remain in the drivers.
This talk summarizes the issues and aims answer the question of the priorities for the remaining issues based on the feedback of the audience.
