[LLVMdev] [llvm-announce] llvm and simplescalar

Thank you for your answers and suggestions!
Well, I want to do some experiments about the compiler optimization in llvm under SPM and I need performance evaluation. As I know, alpha is a general-purpose CPU, so I consider that arm may be an alternative. Simplesim-arm is able to do performance simulation while m5-arm is still under development. Then, what should I do? Do the experiment under m5-alpha or use simplesim-arm? And if I choose to use m5-alpha, can I use llvm as the compiler for this simulator?

IMNSHO, don't use SimpleScalar. It's simulation model is WAY ourt of date.
Use M5 instead:
