Yes and no. I used to use the lowRISC patches, since the trunk 
version used to be severely behind. But there were some bugs in 
the patched backend that were preventing further progress. With 
the latest merges the trunk now seems more usable (more complete, 
and the bugs exhibited by the patches seem to no longer be there) 
so I'm using that.

In any case, the author is the same (Alex Bradbury). I've been in 
contact with him, but he goes several months without replying, 
due to competing priorities and lack of funding.

I guess I could ask for help in the llvm-dev mailing list. I 
thought people here might be more motivated to help, given the 
focus on D support.
