DId you do this locally? I can't see a commit. I think that to add
support for compiler-rt on ARM you need to:
1) Specify arm_SOURCES and add "arm" to this loop in
  foreach(arch x86_64 i386)
      add_compiler_rt_static_runtime(clang_rt.${arch} ${arch}
        SOURCES ${${arch}_SOURCES}
        CFLAGS "-std=c99")
2) Make sure CAN_TARGET_arm is properly defined in
compiler-rt/CMakeLists.txt. See test_target_arch function
and places where it's called. Note that at the moment the CMake build
uses host compiler (not just-built Clang) to
build compiler-rt libraries, so building compiler-rt targeting arm on
x86_64 host might be a problem.

We run AddressSanitizer tests on arm-android. Probably it should work
fine on ARM+Linux, but we don't have a buildbot
or continuous testing for that (and you'd have to add support for
building sanitizers on ARM Linux in a similar way).
