Only if you include our LLVM/clang patches in your LLVM/clang builds. As 
it stands LLVM/Clang still has issues that need fixing in order to make 
it able to build the Linux Kernel code.

We still have a couple of outstanding issues in clang we're trying to 
track down as well which affect linking (which should affect what you're 
trying to do).

That will be your best bet.

Not that I'm aware of. Go for it. :)
