Just a reminder, while the llvm package is nominally mine, my interest
in it extends exactly as far as llvm, and even that is grudging.  That
clang is built from the same srpm is only because llvm upstream don't
give you any other way to build it, afaik (and if this changes I will
happily fix the packaging to reflect it).

I am happy to have comaintainers.  Honestly I'd mark it cvsextras+ if
that was still a thing we had.

Except that on x86, if you hack out -fstack-protector-strong, floating
point code will compile and link, where on arm it will not even get as
far as compiling.
