In my previous blog post I introduced my work to improve Rust's support for RISC-V Linux systems. Since then I have fixed a couple of interesting compiler bugs. This blog post describes my process to track down these issues; explains some
rustcinternals; and discusses movement in the broader Rust community regarding RISC-V.
RISC-V is a new Instruction Set Architecture developed in the open and available for use without paying a license fee. This means there are no barriers to achieving open hardware implementations, which opens the door to performant (mostly) open hardware processors...
