@lqd lqd commented Mar 1, 2022

The latest nightly includes rust-lang/cargo#10388, the fix for rust-lang/cargo#10356. This allows the cdylib to be built on the CLI rather than hyper having to set the crate-type in Cargo.toml, and allows it to participate in cargo's pipelining to improve build times.

This nightly is identified by rustup as nightly-2022-03-02, and cargo's version is cargo 1.61.0-nightly (3d6970d 2022-02-28)

I've tested rust's CI artifacts 6e5a6ffb14fc47051b0a23410c681ad6e4af045f (the PR updating cargo in rust), and nightly-2022-03-02, to build and test hyper with the new command: is built, and the client example successfully compiles.

Here are links to timings of hyper master on nightly, and this PR with cargo 6e5a6ffb14fc47051b0a23410c681ad6e4af045f (release build at j8). The pipelining is now active (and surprisingly effective here, a 29% improvement)

Remove unconditional building of FFI libraries: now
that nightly supports --crate-type, it can be opted into.
This fixes cargo's pipelining both for dependencies and
for dependent crates, resulting in faster from-scratch builds.
Now that FFI is opt-in using cargo's --crate-type, nightly needs to be used
on CI: this flag is still unstable and requires a nightly to enable -Z unstable options.
Update the command to use `--crate-type`.
