I would suggest that you start with reading through Andi's email to
another student who expressed interest in that project which you can
find at: https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2018-02/msg00216.html
Andi, do you have any further suggestions what Prateek should check-out,
perhaps build, examine and experiment with in order to come up with a
nice proposal? Do you personally prefer starting with any particular
existing fuzzer, for example?
