Okay, I'm not sure I wnat to know details, after searching for a GCC
language server, finding patches from 2017, and son on.

BTW.  I happened to try lsp-mode instead of eglot a week or two ago.  It
worked OOTB with Emacs' sources and clangd, which was already installed
on my system.  The only thing one needs is a tool for extracting a
compile_commands.json.  The first I tried, 'bear', also worked OOTB
("make clean; bear -- make" was enough).

No performance problems here, also.
