> Yes, I think this is a reasonable point.  The cheapest SystemZ system is somewhere around $75K, so widespread availability isn’t really a relevant criteria for accepting that.

And SystemZ is hopefully a good comparison in that is a new and well
isolated backend. Ever since it went in I can remember only ever
discussing 1 or 2 patches, and the last case pushed me to improving
common code (r255902).

Is it a good summary of the thread that everyone is OK with Lanai
being an experimental backend and we can discuss taking it out of
experimental when there is desire for that?
