Good afternoon, Oscar.

I attached updated version of patches.

Checked on CentOS5/2.8.2, mingw, msys, msvs8 and msvs10.

Sure. I reconfirmed what I was wrong.
I have not realized that because I prefer "make edit_cache" :p

I see.

My intention is simply to separate simple options to list,
not to separate complex arguments.
It seems UNIX_COMMAND works fine.
I may choose whatever works. What would be better?

Without separation, we will see lit.py "-sv --no-progress-bar".

I intended to minimize changes and append LLVM_LIT_ARGS to tail of EXTRA_ARGS.
It makes sense not to use CLANG_TEST_EXTRA_ARGS.

I added an entry to docs/CMake.html. Feel free to add something or
rewrite whole.
