LLC ARM Backend maintainer

Evan,

I'm the code owner of LLVM codegen and targets. I'm also the one of

main developers on the original ARM target. That means, I would make the
decisions on major development on ARM target if there are decisions to
be made.

But my role is very different from what people are looking for in this

thread. To properly qualify a target like ARM which are supported on
many different CPUs and platforms, we need a group of volunteers. This
is critical near release time for obvious reasons, but it's also welcome
between releases as well. LLVM.org doesn't explicitly name these
"maintainers". I personally don't see a benefit because we don't want to
force people to do release qualification when they might not be
available. I think what we usually do is for the release manager to
gather a group of volunteered. These are the folks who are responsible
for qualification the targets of their interests on their preferred
platform.

Group of volunteers sounds great! I would like to add
my resources for ARM target qualification.

- Cortex-A9MP (Tegra2) ARMv7 architecture on Ubuntu/Linux, this is
quite useable dual-core system for host testing. I have 2 systems that
I can volunteer.

- Cortex-A8 I have bunch of devices but they are only good for target
testing.

- Cortex-Mx ARMv7M I have myriad of boards that I use for target
testing, the problem is that they can only run very small testcases.

- Assorted ARMv4, ARMv5 and ARMv6 architecture or ARM11, ARM9 and ARM7
processors. Usable for host testing are the Marvell Armada/Kirkwood
based Plug Computers, easy to get and I can volunteer 1.

Just my 32-bits.

Please talk to Bill, the release manager, about how you can help.

Thanks,

Evan

  I have one Marvell Armada XP (Cortex-A9MP) ARMv6 and one Marvell
AV-D1 (Dove-ARMv7 single core). I can get Armada XP ARMv7 replacement
at the end of this year. Can I also be a volunteer? :slight_smile:
