To add my oar in, I agree with Tim here. It is regrettable but true that
documentation, be that the ARMARM or ACLE tends to lag behind our
development. If LLVM wants to be at the leading edge of architecture
support (I hope it does!) then patches will just have to be accepted
without pointers to existing documentation, because the documentation is
still in draft. It's either that or wait until the documentation is ready,
which can be quite some time (there is no v8.1A ARMARM yet...)

The ACLE in particular stays in draft for some time, because it often waits
for implementations to be done in GCC and LLVM to see if the specification
is actually workable!
