Dear LLVMLinux mailing list,

I am doing a BSc. project where I am to port the Linux kernel to a new
architecture.
It has recently come to my attention that the integrated assembler might
not be usable for building the Linux kernel. I am wondering if this only
applies to specific architectures or if there is some code in other parts
of the kernel that relies upon the GNU assembler?

The tools I have available are:
+ A port of LLVM 3.4 and Clang 3.4
+ gold linker from binutils 2.24
+ LLVM compiler-rt 3.2

Is there anything in particular I should be aware of?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Best regards,
Kasper L. Stilling
