Article about a cilk_spawn optimization in Cilk Plus/LLVM

The Cilk Plus/LLVM developers have recently added support for all of the tasking keywords in Intel® Cilk™ Plus - cilk_spawn, cilk_sync, and cilk_for - and we wanted to take the opportunity to talk about some of the work that went into their implementation.  I have published an article about one of the optimizations that is done to reduce spawn overhead in Cilk Plus/LLVM (also performed by Intel® Composer XE), which also gives a peek under the hood at how spawn works:

You can also take a look at all of our source code on GitHub, or try Cilk Plus/LLVM for yourself.  We would love to hear your feedback!
