LLVM for m68k completed (but not merged)


I just received the news that the m68k backend for LLVM has been finished [1].

It has not been merged upstream yet (that will take some time), but it should
be usable now. I'm currently test-building it on Debian/m68k and it would probably
a good idea if more people give it a spin to help finding issues.

One issue I found is that CycleTimer has not been implemented. A quick fix is to
use the definition used by MIPS, i.e.:

diff --git a/llvm/utils/benchmark/src/cycleclock.h b/llvm/utils/benchmark/src/cycleclock.h
