[llvm-dev] Benchmarks for LLVM-generated Binaries

I've lately been wondering where benchmarks for LLVM-generated binaries are hosted, and whether they're tracked over time. I'm asking because I'm thinking of where to put some benchmarks I've written using the open source Google benchmarking library  to test certain costs of XRay-instrumented binaries, the XRay runtime, and other related measurements (effect of patching/unpatching of various-sized functions, etc.)
As I can certainly publish the numbers I get from the benchmarks, it's not as good as having the benchmarks available somewhere that others can run and verify for themselves (and scrutinise to improve accuracy).
I asked on IRC (#llvm) and Chandler suggested that I ask on the list too.
- Is the test-suite repository the right place to put these generated-code benchmarks?
- Are there any objections to using a later version of the Google benchmarking library  in the test-suite?
- Are the docs on the Testing Infrastructure Guide still relevant and up-to-date, and is that a good starting point for exploration here?
