That's correct.  A more detailed explanation is here

Yes, that's why we want to call clang -cc1.

Yes, %clang_cc1 is a special alias for /path/to/build/bin/clang -cc1.

-O0 is the default.

Yes, except that you don't need -S, and -target should be -triple.
See other tests in CodeGen directory.

Yes, driver tests are the only tests that should invoke %clang instead
of %clang_cc1.
