            Bug ID: 42974
           Summary: implement -ffixed-* for q* registers
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Backend: AArch64
          Assignee: unassignedbugs at nondot.org

For the aarch64 Linux kernel, we recently considered the use of -ffixed-* for
q* (NEON SIMD) registers. [0]

Currently, LLVM and Clang support -ffixed- for most x* registers [1], but not
any q* registers.

It's probably not too much work to implement this now in a similar fashion to
the x* registers, especially now with the monorepo.
