Hi Paul et al.,
I have been offline for some weeks. Some smaller patches were posted
before that time, but there has still been no review yet to my
knowledge. This includes my long-standing enhancements to ppc(64) code
generation , some signedness changes for OSX, some guint32 ->
gulong changes (e.g., ), and Olaf posted a ppc64-related patch to
use GCC 4.1's new built-in atomic ops when available .
There is a ticket tracking ppc64 progress:
I have multiple Git branches on repo.or.cz:
- ppc64-cleanup includes cosmetic changes that help with our changes
and their review
- ppc64-functional includes functional ppc changes in addition to the
- ppc64 tracks the "final" work-in-progress (Two patches from Olaf's
branch I still need to apply there.)
- ppc64-todo sometimes has changes on top of ppc64, to keep TODOs out
of the patches
Getting rebased all the time, I admit they are not comfortable to read
log-wise but the patches posted in Bugzilla can be extracted by `git
diff master2..ppc64-cleanup`, `git diff ppc64-cleanup..ppc64-
Regarding the time frame, I've worked on the port since Q2 2007 as
time permits, and the big obvious hurdles have been taken; now it's
mostly rebasing against breaking changes in trunk and about debugging.
Any help and ideas where the crashes/hangs/whatever-it's-currently may
stem from are highly appreciated.
If we could get an okay to apply some of our smaller non-intrusive
changes (below) to trunk, it would greatly help our porting effort and
Geoff, Paolo or whomever with the review of the "real" JIT changes.
(slightly updated in Git, but pending since 2007)
