Vector Predication round table

Hi,

The Vector Predication extension (https://reviews.llvm.org/D57504) is an
on-going project to make LLVM a better place for predicating SIMD and
vector architectures.
Since there was no vector predication round table at the virtual DevMtg
last week.. let's have one now!

I propose the following time slot:

  Thu, 22.10.2020, 4pm [UTC] // 1h Call (I'll send out a link on llvm-dev)

I'll prepare a few slides on VP, its development status and the roadmap
(~15min) followed by an open discussion.
It's time to bring everyone to the table and boost the VP effort.

Hi,

The Vector Predication Round Table takes place today (Thu, 2020-10-22) from 4pm to 5pm UTC.

Link: https://meet.sx-aurora.de/LLVMVP

I‘ll open the call 10min before to give people time to test their setup.

Hi,

We had our Vector predication round table yesterday. Detailed notes are
here:

Thank you for attending and making the round table so productive!

One key takeaway for me is that there should be an introductory talk to
LLVM-VP to explain a) its scope, b) its benefits and c) how much work
it would be to get to those benefits. I take that on my TODO list
and prepare an introductory talk. We will have another round table call
after people had time to digest the video and draw their conclusions.
