WG checkins

  • @_WG-diagnostics by @Esteban K├╝ber and @oli prev. checkin

    Esteban reports: The diagnostics namespace is now on nightly. Not useful yet for anything, but that unblocks on_type_error and on_unimplemented to be implemented for non rustc usecases

Backport nominations

T-compiler stable / T-compiler beta

  • :beta: “Permit pre-evaluated constants in simd_shuffle” rust#113529
    • Fixes #113500 and #114844 (and a few others), can’t compile crate packed_simd_2-0

2023-08-14 Triage Log

A light week. Main thing to report is we got some improvements from telling LLVM that the negation in <*const T>::sub cannot overflow.

  • This was specifically added to undo regressions flagged in PR #114604
  • it did indeed undo the big changes: e.g. cranelift-codegen-0.82.1 had regressed by {2%, 1.7%}, and this improved it back by {-1.84%, -1.59%}
  • likewise cargo-0.60.0 had improved by -0.93%, and this regressed it back by 0.99%. (I.e. we returned to prior status quo.)
  • some other effects were not addressed by this PR, but they are all minor.
  • marking as triaged.
