Hi Sean,

  Currently, I want to make one note for building LLVM/Clang for ARM,
and the other one for testing. People who building LLVM/Clang on a ARM
board which has no more than 1G memory, should make a swap partition
and use gold to avoid oom. The other one is not so obvious. People who
want to run test cases on ARM should build LLVM/Clang with "--with-abi=aapcs"
option, this is an option not list on `configure --help`, to avoid
false alarm. More details can see in [1].
