00:49 timotimo oh, the "attempted to unlock a mutex by a thread not holding it" or whatever was from when i added a new op and forgot ot recompile rakudo ... i think?
00:49 timotimo or when i did the reverse; threw away the changes and forgot to recompile rakudo
00:50 timotimo Please report this as a bug (mail to rakudobug@perl.org)
00:50 timotimo and re-run with the --ll-exception command line option
00:50 timotimo to get more information about your error>
00:50 timotimo where is this coming from? o_O
00:50 timotimo Backtrace.pm, eh? huh.

07:33 yoleaux 25 Mar 2017 07:50Z <samcv> nine: getting those failing tests again. maybe because i'm using libffi under moarvm and not dyncall?
07:33 yoleaux 30 Mar 2017 03:59Z <AlexDaniel> nine: any ideas? https://irclog.perlgeek.de/perl6/2017-03-30#i_14348415
07:34 samcv that was a while ago. hm
07:34 nine Oops... Shouldn't I have gotten these on #perl6-dev, too?
07:35 samcv probably
07:37 samcv anyway i have not 100% confirmed the abovee, but that's what i suspect the issue may be
07:38 domidumont joined #moarvm
07:58 nine Well dyncall is certainly the better tested one.

08:24 brrt good *, #moarvm
08:24 brrt ohai nine
08:24 brrt lol 'giving less focus on top committer stats'
08:25 brrt well, if you're open source community is so screwed that people regard it as a points-gathering exercise...
08:25 brrt *your
08:27 samcv hi brrt
08:28 brrt hi samcv
08:33 samcv that's a good article
08:34 samcv i need to invent one of those watches that counts your steps or something except it tracks your points
08:34 samcv and it will make exciting noisese when you gain points
08:37 samcv also soon we will have coverage reports with every commit i expect
08:37 samcv since i've now learned how to get travis ci to make commits to repositories
08:37 samcv and we will have a github pages page which will have the coverage infos
08:38 brrt it's a decent article, but I can't help but grumble like an old fart about the… assumingness of it all
08:38 brrt i'm not sure how to say it correctly
08:38 samcv i think I get what you mean
08:39 brrt well, that's better than I could expect :-)
08:40 brrt that said
08:40 brrt how is your experience as a new contributor for moar / rakudo?
08:40 brrt i do wonder
08:42 samcv good
08:42 samcv it makes me very happy
08:53 samcv to be improving a language I love for all the people that use it
08:53 samcv is very satisfying

09:47 brrt joined #moarvm
09:48 brrt well, that's good to hear :-)
09:48 nine brrt: the article does mention that it is written with a kernel focus
09:52 brrt oh, i didn't notice tha
09:54 nine brrt: s/better of re-engineering/better off re-engineering/ in your latest blog post
09:55 nine And very interesting bit about setjmp/longjmp :)
09:58 brrt i'll fix it, thanks :-)
10:05 nine brrt: hahaha, that's cool. Just reading your Register Allocator Update blog post and when I came to the paragraph about squeezing in new tiles into the tile array, I though "couldn't you just leave some space between the tiles?". And that seems to be exactly what you did :)
10:21 stmuk joined #moarvm
10:26 brrt yes, it is :-)
10:47 samcv night moarvm :)

11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM: Fix mp_get_int64 and mp_get_uint64 for realz
11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM:
11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM: mp_get_long_long does in fact overflow/wrap around when the mp_int is
11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM: too large. So bring back checking the number of bits in the mp_int
11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM: before calling it. Also, remove the redundant check for whether the
11:23 Geth ¦ MoarVM: mp_int is 0, since the exact same check is done in mp_get_long_long.

15:21 Geth ¦ MoarVM: Remove arbitrary and small length range check.
15:21 Geth ¦ MoarVM:
15:21 Geth ¦ MoarVM: This meant we could not slurp a file over 100MB in binary mode without
15:21 Geth ¦ MoarVM: getting an error. Removing this, such a file is very easily slurped.
