Hey folks, I'm interested in looking into https://github.com/rust-lang/rust/issues/65844 issue. (I've no experience in LLVM.)
so far, I've cloned rust repo and set it up in my local. Also, I can re-produce the stated bug in ticket using locally build binary.
Please someone give me some hint on where should I be looking in codebase to make some progress? Thanks!

My first step would be trying to find out where in LLVM's code this error message is detected to get more context. This likely requires enabling assertions and maybe debug info in LLVM (there's settings for both in rust's config.toml)

this page might help when setting those values: https://rust-lang.github.io/rustc-guide/how-to-build-and-run.html

Thanks @rkruppe I'll take a look.
