Hi Jiong,

did you receive a full review by an LLVM committer who approved the full 
patch set (not just individual ones) with some kind of "Looks good to 
me"? This is the requirement Chris put for inclusion and only after this 
has happened (and there are no major concerns found during review) you 
should commit the back end.

I am myself very supportive on getting this in, but I have the feeling 
this did not yet happen. So I propose to not commit this backend 
prematurely. (In case I missed something and this review already 
happened, would you mind pointing me to the email and committer who 
reviewed the backend)
