I think that will be great. But as I said, it's a bit dicey at the moment
how this will work out with the student, so I suggest that if you will
convince your bosses to allow working on ARM backend, you just keep us
updated on the progress. If things work out good on my end, I'll ask you
what part of work you can "outsource" ;-)

Hmm, it's looks like LLVM will have backends for all relevant processors in
near future, except maybe MIPS. Anybody wants to sponsor MIPS backend? ;-)
