Hey all, i wrote about the Cranelift backend @bjorn3 is working on and its relationship with rustc over the weekend, i think it's something people are interested in.

appreciate any updates or feedback

This means the rust compiler will build against both the LLVM and Cranelift backends then fail the build should either of them not work properly.

That sounds like it's saying that tests will be run with the Cranelift backend to me, and my recollection is that the build will only be gated on the Cranelift backend compiling
