And massively improved aarch64 support

It doesn't look, with a basic repoquery test, that anything in the
core distro needs python-llvmpy so my general feeling is to query
upstream to see what their intentions are regarding support of newer
releases and if they don't intend to keep up then just drop
python-llvmpy at least for the time being unless the Fedora maintainer
plans to fix it RSN.
