I don't see why the clang people can't go back to using out of tree
patches to make their compile 'work' until they've caught up with 7-year
old tech.

Also, I'd really like to know if there are any plans to support
asm-cc-output, otherwise we'll have this same old drama all over again
in a few years :/
