Hi Tobias & Joerg,
I understand your concern.
yes, Asm Parser is a module which could be committed individually, but I
think the code
for AsmParser is relatively small and highly target dependent, a full
regression test which
cover all instructions could largly gurantee the correctness.
I know contributors have their own works. For TILE-Gx backend, it's good
if any contributor could have time to finish a full set review, I have
been wating for several weeks.
I personly think it's not premature to commit TILE-Gx backend into
mainline and default disable. Because:
1. TILE-Gx finished the regression test & test-suite test.
2. TILE-Gx buildbot will be setup, so it will be convinent for both
community & Tilera company to monitor the status.
So should I keep waiting the full set review? or it's OK to commit and
