[llvm-dev] Compiling Linux kernel with LLVM for mips64el

Robin Eklind via llvm-dev
Hi LLVM and Kernel developers,

I am building Linux Kernel[1] with LLVM toolchain[2] for mips64el. It is
just able to workaround[3] build, please teach me how to fix PR38063 and
PR38128, thanks a lot!

1. Linux Kernel 4.9 branch

2. Loongson clang version 7.0.0
([hidden email]:Loong-Language/loong-clang.git
([hidden email]:Loong-Language/loong-llvm.git
59cb663e72874dda740aa2b18bf47ba65b32fe9b) (based on LLVM 7.0.0svn)
Target: mips64el-redhat-linux
Thread model: posix
InstalledDir: /opt/loong-llvm/bin
Found candidate GCC installation: /usr/lib/gcc/mips64el-redhat-linux/4.9.3
Selected GCC installation: /usr/lib/gcc/mips64el-redhat-linux/4.9.3
Candidate multilib: .;
Selected multilib: .;

3. Ugly workaround in Kernel and Compiler sides

5. Unsupported inline asm tying incompatible types
