I just tried to actually run the tests in llvm/test (as opposed to
llvm/tools/clang/test) and none of them work on windows. They all fail
due to windows using \ for directories, which the test runner seems to
want to use as an escape sequence.

What I don't get is how clang tests run fine on windows, but not llvm
tests. And why I have not seen this problem posted anywhere.
