[Apologies if you received this email twice, the first time I sent it

some time ago Intel proposed a set of minimal IR extensions to improve
the support of OpenMP in LLVM .
I wonder if there has been any progress on this and if it is going to
Also the previous proposal and communications to the llvm-dev
mention the following spec:
LLVM Intrinsic Function and Metadata String Interface for Directive
(or Pragmas) Representation.
Specification Draft v0.9, Intel Corporation, 2016.
but I have not been able to find it anywhere (at least via a web
search). Is it available somewhere?
Thanks a lot,
There are at least two concurrent efforts that work on an IR extension
similar to what you cite below, one by Intel and one by a researcher
working group. Afaik, both will approach the community in the next few
weeks. (And to make sure they'll see your mail I put them all in the
In the meantime you could take a look at this proposal . It is not
an IR extension but an abstraction layer that allows to design and
test parallel specific analysis and optimizations on both current and
future parallel representations.
I realized you saw the proposal already but I didn't want to remove
the paragraph about it once I was done.
thanks a lot Johannes.
I have some (hopefully simple) questions about your proposal. I'll
make them in the original thread, instead.
this time I actually put some people in the CC that can probably better
