Thank you Sean and Paweł for helping to commit and the advise on the
process! Yeah I guess explicitly asking for help on committing is
easier to understand and makes others realize immediately that I don't
have write access.

Paweł mentioned about Phabricator, which makes me want to bring up my
feeling when reading the Developer Policy
Personally I was a bit confused about what to do as someone outside
the project writing a quick fix. The document first says the commit
list is "preferred" and later describes Phabricator as "optionally
used". I was even tempted to both send the patch to llvm-commits
manually AND create a review on Phabricator, but found out that was
not right only after reading another document
(http://llvm.org/docs/Phabricator.html). It might be good to
streamline the recommended process for "one-off" patches and clarify
the commit list v.s. Phabricator a bit more.

Lastly, about the unit tests Paweł mentioned, I checked both the
original commit (r251784) and the latest svn trunk. The related test
is mainly for path concatenation and Unicode handling. The name of the
environment variable is not tested, so I believe neither the typo nor
the fix for the typo would affect the test.

Again, much appreciate your help!
