Hi folks, sorry for a long absence, I've been extremely occupied with
family-related activities.
Luke, thank you for the updates!

Jacob, could you handle this, please?

Based on the last few comments I believe these have been stopped at
the openpower-isa stage.
I'm not immersed enough to handle this part, but, once this stage is
done, I can update binutils respectively.

Thanks for clarification! I'll submit it once #1068 is unblocked.

OK, I'll handle tasks related to binutils.
1. Create one subtask under 1035, and assign some budget from 1035.
2. Transfer a bit of the budget for 1119 from 1035.
3. As for visitor-related, I think 979 and 980 fit this best, as
binutils continuation. I think I'll cut one of these tasks (or even
both) into parts. One part will be "backend-agnostic C code
generation", which is reused by binutils. I assume we cannot change
the budget for any of these tasks, but we can decompose them into
subtasks. Is it correct?

Do the above statements look good? I'll wait for your confirmation,
guys, so that I can be sure before I proceed.

Best regards,
Dmitry Selyutin
