[LLVMdev] Emit 4-byte-displacement jump instructions instead of short one-byte-displacement jump instructions, when generating machine code, under x86_64

There is an -mc-relax-all command line flag that should do this. It will
also use longer forms of some adds, subs, etc. Not sure how to set it from
clang, but hopefully this helps point you in the right direction.
