We do plan to drop support for LLVM 3.x in the near future, but it has 
been a somewhat painful transition to LLVM 5.0 (I lost count of the 
times we thought we were done, but stumbled into some weird regression 
that caused us to delay/revert the move), so it would be better to wait 
a month to let dust settle, before start yanking out support for LLVM 
3.3 out of Mesa source tree.

But feel free to stop testing LLVM 3.3.  We've now stopped building with 
it too.

Just one remark: for those who care, it's possible, but a big pain to 
get LLVM 5 cross compiled with MinGW, due to C++ threads, which require 
libstdc++ w/ win32-pthread.  I should write up instructions somewhere.
