(Very mildly) related
There's also the missing header for 'other' wordsize configs.
llvm/Config/llvm-config.h does mention both -32 and -64 headers, but
only one is shipped. Guessing that just like above it's a intentional
design decision or a bug ;-)

Glad we're on the same page.

Sounds like a plan. This might cause some minor perf degradation, as
we nuke the translate_sse2 path, but I guess one can benchmark that in
due time. On the other hand, if we mandate LLVM for those paths we
might end up 'forcing' it on driver which don't use it yet - nouveau,
ilo, freedreno, vc4, virgl...
Hopefully I didn't open a (the) can of worms with that last statement.
