Hi Quentin,

My only remaining concern is around ABI compatibility.
The following commit seems to indicate that in the previous round of evaluation, we didn’t find an existing ABI compatibility issue:
I haven’t looked into the details of this issue - so maybe I’m worried over nothing?

No, you’re right. The problem with ABI is if you are consistently wrong, then you won’t notice :).

I’m wondering if since then on your side you did any testing around ABI compatibility?
E.g. building software where you semi-randomly build some functions through GlobalISel and some functions through DAGISel?

Justin will look into that. Clang has utility script for that utils/ABITest.

Given we will only be able to check iOS ABI, you may want to follow the same kind of validation on your side.

I let you sync up with Justin for the method.

Thanks Quentin & Justin!
I had a brief look at utils/ABITest. It seems a bit light on documentation on how to best run the test.
I’m happy to try and run it on linux if you can share some info on the best way to run that test, Justin?
