[cfe-commits] Historical ARM-linux regression test failures are now fixed

Hi all,

Just to point out something that some LLVM/clang contributors may not have
noticed. Historically the regression tests "on" ARM (and hence the
buildbots) have had quite a few longstanding failures, which made seeing any
new regressions difficult. Over the past couple of months various people --
including Wei-Ren Chen, Joey Gouly, Amara Emerson, Eli Friedman and probably
others whose names I've unfortunately forgotten -- have been making patches
to fix those issues properly, and all the historical regression failures are
now gone on the current ubuntu gnueabihf platfrom. (We're not green just now
due to a couple of failing tests introduced just yesterday.)

I'm just highlighting this to suggest that it's now worth people's time
looking at ARM failures (eg, looking at the output of the ARM buildbots


listed on


) after patches have been committed in order to keep LLVM's quality high.
(For historical bugs it's often the case failures that "on" ARM are actually
due to using ARM parameters/definitons and can be recreated on x86 with the
appropriate triple, etc.) I'll be keeping half an eye on their status and
notify people when I notice things, but as the saying goes "with more
