When you’re talking about stack links, are you referring to how segmented stacks are implemented? Those were dropped from Rust a few years back. Panics also need a handler, which defaults to a shared implementation based on libunwind. However, I think an MVP could instead just abort and leave unwinding to be implemented later. Normal operations would need some work on things like compiler intrinsics. I would offer to get involved, but I have no real experience in compilers so this would be far beyond my comfort level.
