Hello 馃憢

I am a Linux kernel developer focused on improving compatibility with LLVM and clang as part of ClangBuiltLinux. I mostly blog about my work and tips and tricks that I discover.

2023 ClangBuiltLinux Retrospective

Just like I did last year, I want to do a yearly report/retrospective for 2023 to look at what I (and the whole ClangBuiltLinux team in some cases) accomplished. I do monthly reports but looking at a high level across the year helps put things into perspective and drive improvements going into the new year. Linux kernel This year, I had 129 commits accepted into maintainer trees (not all will be merged into mainline in 2023 but they were written and added in maintainer trees in 2023)....

Miscellaneous fixes and improvements: These are fixes and improvements that don鈥檛 fit into a particular category but are important to ClangBuiltLinux. RISC-V: Disable DWARF5 with known broken LLVM versions (v2) Stable backports and fixes: It is important to make sure that the stable trees are as free from issues as possible, as those are the trees that devices and users use; for example, Android and Chrome OS regularly merge from stable, so if there is a problem that will impact those trees that we fixed in mainline, it should be backported....

Linux kernel patches Warning fixes: These are patches to fix various warnings that appear with LLVM. I used to go into detail about the different warnings and what they mean, but the important takeaway for this section is that the kernel should build warning free, as all developers should be using CONFIG_WERROR, which will turn these all into failures....
