rocm-device-libs placement in llvm/clang namespace

Greetings LLVM Maintainers,

I am in discussions with ROCm upstream about the placement of
GPU bitcodes libraries [1], and it looks like there is an intent
to move these into llvm namespace in upcoming upstream releases.
Would it be okay that the rocm-device-libs package puts files
somewhere below /usr/lib/TRIPLET/llvm-VERS/ ?

Rationale behind that is that bitcodes seem highly dependent on
the llvm version in use, and require tight coupling.  Thinking a
couple of times about it, I believe it is technically okay-ish
(that should work for packages wrapping add-ons of other
packages), but it is also quite possible this would require
coordination when targeting locations not initially thought for

Thanks for your work on packaging llvm!

Have a nice day,  :)
