I'm curious what prompted you to experiment with libgccjit if you were already working with llvm. Was it a specific limitation you were bumping against, or are you just exploring options to see what you like best/gives you the best performance? Have you also looked at GNU libjit? That one might be x86 only; I'm not sure what their platform support looks like, or if it's actively maintained any more, actually.

And the main website:

The libgccjit based JIT compiler is not yet released as this is work
in progress.

Thanks and Regards
