The Mill pipelining code in the middle-end will be contributed. However, we don’t expect there to be much. As I understand it, LLVM already does pipeline analysis, and we will use that. Our job will be to remove/bypass the LLVM code that actually does pipelinin transformations and simply pass on the fact that pipelining is applicable, and detected parameters such as iteration interval, to the specializer where the needed transformations will be applied.

The specializer is coming along nicely. LLVM is still to unfamiliar to project a schedule.

I thank you for your comments on dynamic language issues. They prompted internal design work that has led to a new approach for VMs on the Mill. NYF though :-)
