SPARC JIT?

Greetings,

I've been using LLVM and Clang for a while now, primarily targeting
x86 and ARM. Recently, I read the list of open LLVM projects, one of
them being "Add JIT support to the SPARC port." Looking further, I saw
a May 2010 post from Chris Lattner [2], which basically stated that a
future-proof implementation should use LLVM-MC.

Is anybody currently working on this project? If not, would anybody be
willing to act as my mentor (in case I have questions about LLVM
policy, design, or a piece of code which steadfastly refuses to
divulge its secrets to me)?

Thanks in advance!

Cheers,
~~ Ondra Hošek

Cool!

I don't know of anyone working on that. You can send questions to the
llvmdev list whenever you need. If you search the commit list, you'll
find how some targets started migrating to the MC framework, and can
use that as base for your work.
