I'm not convinced that the PARSEC tests are appropriate for addition the LLVM testsuite, because they are multithreaded tests. The testsuite needs to be low-volatility in terms of performance variation, as well as easy to verify correctness, and easy for the compiler developers to debug miscompilations. I don't think PARSEC is a good match on these fronts.
