Ha, yes, I always get confused.

You should communicate with Anton (cc'd), as he was trying to do exactly
that a few days ago. I'm also copying the LLVMLinux list, since this is the
second thread on the subject in a short time, there might be some trend to
make it work and add a buildbot or something like that.

I think that, on the Android front, it would be really nice to have
Clang/LLVM working well, especially on the JIT front, so that we could have
a more generic JIT experience, rather than just Renderscript. We should
think about that when creating AOSP images in the future.
