You can't have submodules within submodules like that (or at least it
didn't let me yesterday). For Unixy systems a simple "ln -s clang
llvm/tools" from the top-level should do the trick, but I vaguely
remember that Windows have issues with symlinks?

If so, we might have to restructure our CMake and we'd be able to fix
that at the same time.
