Bit of a newsflash: some people seem to think Mastodon is *only* for people who don't like company / service X, Y, Z.

Guess what? Mastodon is for everyone and anyone.

Don't confuse your thoughts, with those of everyone else.

When we advertise that we're available on Discord, Telegram, Google News etc it's not a suggestion that those are *only* where we are, or that they are the *best*.

Some people need to get a grip.

rust question 

so i'm currently digging into rust for kernel development and, as someone with little rust experience to begin with, feel kind of overwhelmed by the entire build process. my two main problems are:

interoperability with assembly files that make use of the C preprocessor
configuration beyond simple booleans, i.e. i need user supplied strings/integers in both rust and assembly files

are there any homosexuals in the fediverse who could help me out with this?
