The LLVM license doesn't make any claim on the license of your code. You
have to honour at as far as the LLVM libraries themselve are concerned,
e.g. preserve the copyright statements. The license is GPL compatible,
so you think link your own code to the LLVM libraries, even if your code
is under GPL.
