+1, LLDB breakages need to be more visible to Clang/LLVM developers.
Currently they are not very visible, mostly for no good reason.

Stabilizing the LLDB test suite would help, but the bots could probably be
more aggressive about sending IRC or email pings when the build (not tests)
fails, as this is the primary way that LLVM and Clang changes break LLDB.
