ed@ just committed an update of clang/LLVM to HEAD. This update has
(at least) 3 bugs fixed that were reported from FreeBSD.
- annoying "unknown pragma" warning during make depend of kernel
- DWARF fix that fixes dtrace (contributed by kan@)
this requires libelf fix as well
- clang (the driver) execing itself (the compiler) fix regardless of PATH
Beside this, clang should compile C++ better than the previous snapshot.
It should be faster as well.
So far a few problems in clang/LLVM and FreeBSD were fixed but many other
remains, what to do about it?
Test clang with your code!
just cd /usr/src/my/code/ && CC=clang make
clang can spot problems gcc cannot and it would be nice to have those fixed.
it improves the code quality and takes at most a few minutes.
if you encounter something that you think is a clang bug/problem/annoyance
please let us know so we can get this fixed.
thank you for your help!
