 I never saw a commitment that tcc supports X86_64 and I saw never a
statement that tcc supports fully all assembler directives.

x86_64 is quite well supported on the contrary. Several people are making commits just for this architecture and it seems to be the version of tcc people use the most.

That said, I do agree on the general statement that we should define what we care about for tcc. Right now we should aim for a new release of tcc (it's getting a bit long to come there but I have a couple more small bugfix I would like to do before). That means things which are not a regression from 0.9.26 can wait for the next to next release. And yes, .balign definitely enters that category and yes also, there is little chance that tcc will ever support all assembly directive. For one, tcc does not support it assembler on ARM.

Don't take me wrong, I really do appreciate all the bug report we got, although I feel a bit overwhelmed and would welcome any help. But if we try to fix all bugs before we release we'll probably never release so let's fix the biggest one and especially the regressions. I really don't like tcc leading to segfault for programs compiled with it so if these errors could be investigated I would appreciate it but I don't have the time myself.

Best regards,
