that's why I suggested using gcc's cfarm compile farm.

I think it would take at least two weeks to set this up.  I don't
know how long a SoC project is supposed to take, but presumably more
than this.  So this could be part of a larger testing framework.  I
must admit that setting this kind of thing up isn't very exciting or
cutting edge, but it is important.  My impression is that LLVM isn't
tested half as hard as it needs to be.

It would also be nice to have some kind of automated patch queue,
to which patches can be submitted and which runs the testsuite with
them applied.
