Subject: [TECH TOPIC] Rust
Date: Sat, 18 Jun 2022 22:33:01 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CANiq72nNKvFqQs9Euy=_McfcHf0-dC_oPB3r8ZJii2L3sfVjaw@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

The effort to add Rust support to the kernel is ongoing. There has
been progress in different areas during the last year, and there are
several topics that could benefit from discussion:

  - Dividing the `kernel` crate into pieces, dependency management
between internal crates, writing crates in the rest of the kernel
tree, etc.

  - Whether to allow dependencies on external crates and vendoring of
useful third-party crates.

  - Toolchain requirements in the future and status of Rust unstable features.

  - The future of GCC builds: upcoming compilers, their status and
ETAs, adding the kernel as a testing case for them...

  - Steps needed for further integration in the different kernel CIs,
running tests, etc.

  - Documentation setup on kernel.org and integration between
Sphinx/kernel-doc and rustdoc (this can be part of the documentation
tech topic submitted earlier by Jon).

  - Discussion with prospective maintainers that want to use Rust for
their subsystem.

Cheers,
Miguel
