Subject: Re: Linux distribution for using RISC-V musl?

Ataraxia looks really interesting: LLVM+musl+Toybox is the kind of
distribution I’d love to have. Is there any page explaining how to install
Ataraxia on RISCV? The docs only cover x86 and PPC, and besides the latest
RISCV release I found is from 2019 or so...

Also, regarding LLVM LTO, what’s the ticket for following that bug? I
searched for it and all what I found is.
