Yes, but that code doesn't work in the abstract. It only works on darwin
because it has hard coded values. The features there are only based on the
triple so saying that you want to pass in a default of -msse3 to your code
generator doesn't work unless you a) hard code a cpu into
LTOCodeGenerator.cpp or, b) hard code it into the triple (x86_64h anyone?).
