I'm trying to organize an LLVM micro conference at plumbers. I think
a session on "clang and remaining i386 blockers" might be of interest,
which would cover why the existing code pattern is problematic for
compiler portability. This series in particular would be brought up.

Are you all planning on attending plumbers this year? Might such a
session be of interest?

Otherwise, is there any additional feedback on this series or is it good to go?
