I've been trying to use mrustc to bootstrap rust on and off for quite
some time now.  The upstream authors have been busy too and it's far enough
that I have a working rust-1.19.0 compiler compiled by mrustc in /gnu/store :)

The libstd still had some rough edges - and one test takes about 30 h of
building - so it will still take some time until this is done.

I thought in the meantime I'd clean up and split up the patches.

These here are some of the patches that can be applied without switching to 
yet (that is, they just refactor stuff).

>or does this still require some review?

Right now, mrustc officially *supports* x86_64 targets only.

aarch64 is under review upstream (support is there but unfinished).

We will only be able to use mrustc to bootstrap if it supports more 

We will see when that comes to pass.

mrustc is written in a way that it can compile address@hidden so that's why this
exact version is in this patchset.  I hope in the future mrustc can compile
newer versions of Rust.

I've attached my current gnu/packages/rust.scm here - which includes some things
not ready to merge yet.  But it should (famous last words) bootstrap rust 1.24
starting from mrustc in multiple steps.
