Hi eliben,

I'm adding loop unrolling pragmas to clang with change (not yet submitted): http://reviews.llvm.org/D4089
This optimizer change consumes the metadata produced from those pragmas and uses them in the loop unroller.

The pragmas must immediately precede a loop statement and take the following forms:

#pragma clang loop unroll(enable)  // unroll the loop completely
#pragma clang loop unroll(disable)  // do not unroll the loop.
#pragma clang loop unroll_count(N)  // unroll the loop N times

These pragmas mirror recently added loop vectorizer pragmas.  If you have comments on the particulars of the syntax and semantics please comment on the clang change.
