There seems to be plenty of slots available on the 2nd track to
schedule additional BOFs. So I'd gather if there is interest
A) Unit testing (GIMPLE FE, RTL FE, the existing unit-testing),
basically how people feel about moving forward here and how
this would affect the current testsuite structure
B) GIMPLE evolution. With LTO early debug we could finally remove
some tree slack at some point in the compilation. There is
also increasing need to somehow represent multiple outputs
from a GIMPLE stmt (we've used complex types as a workaround
in some cases) -- esp. if we would consider moving GIMPLE further
into the backend area by lowering it and for example performing
instruction selection on GIMPLE (we'd need to represent flag
C) Vectorizer. There's no vectorizer specific talk yet, the usual
suspects would be an update from the we-rewrite-the-vectorizer
folks and ideas about how to improve cost modeling.
If there's no strong interest in any of the above we can schedule
stuf as needed at the Cauldron itself as well.
