Thanks for the feedback Brad.

The iOS support is definitely "Works for Me". My hope is this would also work for Android, but I'm not setup to build for Android.

The CMake command I'm using is:

cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_OSX_ARCHITECTURES="armv7" -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=../llvm/cmake/platforms/iOS.cmake ../llvm/

How does this revised patch look?
