I suggested to support longterm-kernels (see ) in the LLVMLinux project.
The philosophy is more to support "mainline" (Git) for toolchain and
Linux-3.11.y is definitely not a LTS kernel series.
Why do you need that special version?
AFAICS check the "checkpoint(s)" features and which Linux-kernel
release is supported, that can vary from arch to arch.
 shows you as an example "checkpoints" for x86_64 (whatever you
mean by "x86" :-))?
The patches from  might fit for 3.11.y, but test at your own.
I was away quite some time, things might have change.
Hope this helps.
