7) Update the documentation as to what minimum set of C++11 features
are allowed in the code base.

> Alex, can you please make sure that this plan makes it into the next LLVM Weekly? If there are no objections this time I will update CMake files a few days after the LLVM Weekly goes out.

Can you also handle the documentation updates a few days after the
CMake changes have been made live?
