Nice. But what exactly? Do we still need to use chroot? If we do, we could
work on fakeroot or the Yocto equivalent.

Nice and very useful. Like a report at the end of the build: you have
warning X in the file.c:13 file3.c:19
Specially if this report could be stored by buildbot.

Do you mean the --emit-llvm and .bc? Yes, very good.

Nice. And how about llvm/clang self hosted (I mean try our builds from
llvm/clang built by llvm/clang)?

- analyze common errors in mainline kernel and check if some of them could
be upstream. Once I found an ; in a if statement.
- run Android CTS test in Nexus 7 and check if it has some parts broken or
not. Try to fix the ones that are broken.
- llvm/clang self hosted.
- llvm/clang for u-boot. Would be nice to see what we get from these
- llvm/clang for buildroot. Same as before.
