[LLVMdev] Linux x86 testers needed!

Just a FYI.

Default x86-64 relocation model is PIC. I think we should definitely  
test that. x86-32 llc default is dynamic-no-pic. In order to test pic,  
you have to pass something like this to the NewNightlyTest.pl script:

-test-opts "TARGET_FLAGS= TARGET_LLCFLAGS=\"-relocation-model=pic - 
disable-fp-elim\" EXTRA_LLI_OPTS=\"-relocation-model=pic -disable-fp- 

We probably ought to add an option to the script instead.
