i am hoping to get the rest of my wide integer conversion posted by nov 5.
I am under some adverse conditions here: hurricane sandy hit her pretty
badly. my house is hooked up to a small generator, and no one has any power
for miles around.
So far richi has promised to review them. he has sent some comments, but
so far no reviews. Some time after i get the first round of them posted,
i will do a second round that incorporates everyones comments.
But i would like a little slack here if possible. While this work is a
show stopper for my private port, the patches address serious problems for
many of the public ports, especially ones that have very flexible vector
units. I believe that there are significant set of latent problems
currently with the existing ports that use ti mode that these patches will
However, i will do everything in my power to get the first round of the
patches posted by nov 5 deadline.
I suppose you are not going to merge your private port for 4.8 and thus
the wide-int changes are not a show-stopper for you.
That said, I considered the main conversion to be appropriate to be
defered for the next stage1. There is no advantage in disrupting the
tree more at this stage.
