[PATCH] [DOCS] How to Build on ARM

Hi Mikael, Sean,

First, I think we have two different documents there. One, how to prepare
stable, good quality buildbots. The other, how to build on ARM,
specifically ARM buildbots. We shouldn't bundle all that into

Second, the notes on the dev boards was my mere opinion based on very
little experimentation, I'd never put that on an official (long lasting)
documentation, especially naming names and all that. Having this on the
mailing list's history is one thing, having that bundled with LLVM on every
release from now on is a different thing. If you want to say "ARM dev
boards are notoriously unstable", that's fine, they all are, but please
don't name them. Plus, they will be less unstable as time passes, since
they're becoming less and less "dev" and more and more "rack boxes", which
means testing will increase, price will decrease, etc. That comment will be
almost irrelevant in a few years from now.
