luke, the kazan project says that it is a driver, whereas you say that it
is a GPU "Onboard the Libre RISC-V M-Class is the Kazan GPU,..." at:

I accessed the link on the kazan git page to see the risc-v GPU at:
I noticed that you began a paragraph without mentioning what the heck
the RVV thing is that you're talking about:
"one of the things that's lacking from RVV..."
Then you go off into "wonderland" explaining to us that gcc needs to have
something (???) done to it to support RVV. Then you say that such a job
would never have to be done again after Simple-V is through the
"Extension Proposal Process" for "one single parallel / vector / SIMD
instruction" without telling us why that would be the case and why no one
has done such a thing before to make supporting GPUs, or are we still
talking about RVV?, through gcc easier.

I also see no mention of llvm in there, would we need to add support in
both, only gcc, or what?
