Review Corner

The LLVM Weekly review corner serves to highlight patches that are stuck waiting awaiting review, or work from first-time contributors. See here for more information and how to submit you work for inclusion. Of course the hope is that highlighting these patches will enable LLVM Weekly readers will step up and help to get them merged. I'll be reporting back each week on any activity generated on these patches, as well as sharing a new batch. If you want your patch included you must submit it via the linked form.

Last week featured three patches, with two out of three seeing fresh review activity after inclusion. D36471 sadly has seen no additional feedback. Thanks to Jessica Paquette and Anna Zaks for contributing review comments to last week's patches.

There is just one patch submission this week:
