Was it just image support that was dropped or all of r600?
I take it there's not enough interest/manpower to address that?

I'm curious how are you building/managing things:
 - full build with LLVM 3.9
 - r600 build with LLVM 3.9, and another for $other component using newer LLVM
 - other

If really needed, we could keep 3.9 solely for r600 and use 5.0.1+ elsewhere.
Considering LLVM 3.9 isn't getting new updates with last one being in
Sep 2016 we are seriously clinging to straws.
