Thanks again for backporting llvm-toolchain-8!

Llvm-toolchain-9 is now in testing.  Would you please backport that one
too?  I switched irony-mode_1.4.0-1 to use it, and this package is also
now in testing.  IIRC the latest stable version of llvm-toolchain is
also used for libmesa, so it will also be useful for an eventual libmesa
