Dissamsembling that address would reveal if llvm really created binary
code for your function.

This indicates that the JIT is not working and your code is being
interpreted. I don't know about "llvm-config --libs jit" you are using
but I would try adding LLVMJIT.o to your link command the same way you
do with LLVMInterpreter.o

Oh, and renaming your llvmjit.cpp to something else, just in case. (Is
the linker case-sensitive?)
