I believe the ROOT_VLLVM tag might be the root of the vector_llvm
branch.  In that case, it should probably be maintained if at all
possible.  Rob, can you comment?

The jtc and jtcllva tags *do not* need to be maintained.  They were used
to keep track of a snapshot of LLVM known to compile the Linux kernel
before more recent LLVM releases were known to work as well.
