* <https://ci.libreoffice.org/job/lo_ubsan/> is now using an appropriate 
Clang trunk (see 
"Bump ASan/UBSan bot to Clang trunk towards Clang 9").

* The fuzzer machinery was already using Clang trunk and appears to not 
be negatively affected by the below 
9a7aa3326d087c79879e435179e359dd76aa5e0a "The -fvisibility-ms-compat 
hack is no longer needed for UBSan on Linux..." (Caolán, correct me if 
I'm wrong).

* <https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/72493> "Remove legacy 
solenv/sanitizers/asan-suppressions support" will drop the legacy 
NEED_CLANG_LINUX_UBSAN_RTTI_VISIBILITY code (and the no longer needed 
solenv/sanitizers/asan-suppressions, which people might still reference 
from their ASAN_OPTIONS), I plan on submitting it in a week, say.  Speak 
up now if you still need non-trunk Clang supported for sanitizer builds!
