I suggested to support longterm-kernels (see [1]) 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.
[2] shows you as an example "checkpoints" for x86_64 (whatever you
mean by "x86" :-))?
The patches from [3] might fit for 3.11.y, but test at your own.

I was away quite some time, things might have change.

Hope this helps.
