Hi!

First try was on x86-32. It took me a whlie to figure out the problem,
hence the diff below.

Next I was not sure what to do with rustup. I'm not sure if advice
below is good.

Then I got failure because libclang (?) was not installed. I installed
it. But I guess that should be mentioned in docs as dependency.

With CONFIG_RUST unset, kernel builds for me. With CONFIG_RUST=y +
RUST_EXAMPLE=y... I get errors:

Ideas?

Thanks a lot for trying it out and for the feedback! :-)

The supported architectures are in
Documentation/rust/arch-support.rst, so we should link to that.

x86 32-bit and other architectures should eventually work -- we need
to put some time into them and setting up a few things. For the moment
we focused on x86_64 and arm64.

Yeah, this is mentioned on the bindgen section in quick-start.rst, I
will try to improve make it more clear, perhaps I'll a section for
libclang itself.

Typically it is due to a kernel option that enables some GCC flag that
libclang does not know about -- I have a hack in place to make it
work, but requires manual maintenance. Can you please attach your
kernel config?

Meanwhile, please try building with Clang or LLVM instead, the GCC
builds are very, very experimental. I'll make it even more explicit in
the quick-start.

Cheers,
Miguel

Thanks for your work :-).

Actually x86-32 would be useful for me. That's my test machine.

Aha, sorry, it is possible I was not careful enough reading the docs.

Done, in a private message.

I tried, but newest in my distribution is clang-7, and kernel needs
clang-10.

You're welcome! We're trying our best :-)

Sorry... :-( x86 32-bits, ppc64el, s390x... are some of the ones we
will look into soon, but possibly after the RFC.

If you are under Debian-like distributions, these apt repos are easy
to set up (we use them in the CI, in fact):

    https://apt.llvm.org/

Miguel

I tried your config and it worked, so it looks like the problem is
your old libclang (7) does not recognize some of the flags. If you can
try a newer LLVM installation, it would be great to confirm it.

Nevertheless, thanks a lot for providing it -- it was useful to test it.

Cheers,
Miguel

Yeah, LLVM introduced asm goto in 9.0 [1], which makes sense if you
were running libclang-7.

Done, see if you like
