Linux Clang can build a kernel now. "The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 5 (aka X + networking) on the Macbook, both on bare metal and in Qemu. The kernel can successfully boot to runlevel 3 on a secondary test machine, a microATX desktop box (Intel Atom). I haven't tried to start X on this box yet. The kernel can self-host; I am currently running a 'fourth generation' self-hosted Linux kernel built by a 'fourth generation' Clang."

"IMHO that's a major milestone. The next step would be a few distributors to switch to clang.

How about most major BSDs (including OSX) switching to it ?

How about resurrect PureDarwin and build it and debug (lldb) it with llvm/clang.
