I think the job property of a backend compiler writer is more like a
doctor-type job. The more experienced you are, the more valuable you
are. Frontend seems require less experience.
The reason embedded processor companies need compiler wirter is the
chips are diversified in this venue. ABI of general purpose processors
is quite uniformed. ALSO, the dynamic scheduling capability provided
by hardware really leave little space for the benefit that naive
opportimizations can provide.
But I think thing may be better if IA-64 can prove its capability coz
IA-64 kind of processors need a lot of static scheduling. Cell
processor is another one that gives a lot of compiler job
