[Libre-soc-dev] PowerPC64 inline assembly in Rust

I commented on the tracking issue for the new implementation of inline
assembly in Rust, asking that PowerPC64 be the ISA added next:

The new implementation of inline assembly is the version Rust is planning
on stabilizing, the old implementation (now renamed to `llvm_asm!`) binds
directly to LLVM's inline assembly with all of its quirks and undocumented
behavior, and Rust is planning on deprecating and potentially removing it
-- it was never stabilized (available in stable releases of Rust).

Should we create an issue on libre-soc's bugtracker and potentially help
fund implementing powerpc64 inline assembly?
