Sorry to bump an old thread....

Please consider moving to Clang 3.8 or 4.0 as the LLVM front end for
the platform.

Clang 3.5 and 3.6 are no longer maintained. The bugs we are
discovering and reporting are being closed as "invalid" and "won't
fix" because Clang is outside its freshness date.

Also pick up this for glibc:
