PPC64 old JIT support

Hello there!

I’m intending to port LLVM old JIT API for PPC64le once I wiil need this support in one of my applications. Would a port of this old piece of code be merged on LLVM 3.5, even though it is on the verge of obsoleteness?

Thank you!

Caio, even if this patch does not go into 3.5, maybe you’d like to post it on llvm-commits so it will be available publicly and not lost.

3.5 was already released, and we only merge bug fixes to release branches.

Caio, do you really need it on 3.5 specifically or are you just asking
if folks are interested to get it into the trunk?

FYI, this is related to the old JIT which has been removed from trunk and will not be restored.

I'd suggest the OP post a patch to the commits list so that it doesn't get lost, but this is unlikely to make it in to any LLVM release going forward.

p.s. Is there a reason the OP is using the old JIT rather than MCJIT?

Nice,
I'm still in planning phases and I'll try some workaround before digging deep to the port. But the information you guys provided me was important to know the acceptance of my port in such a special case.
Thank you very much.
