* Got MSM working again
* integrated patches for cross compile of compiler-rt

* How does GCC do an EABI kernel build and resolve the EABI funcs for 
dynamic modules?
* Moved EABI funcs to eabi.c
* Fought with clang memory leak for the past week

- Reviewed Bug list with those present. Most bugs were covered by the

your jabber client and joint the llvmlinux room/muc)
