Sorry, meaning ToT at some point closer to our internal freeze date.
For example, LLVM 3.8 branched in January and the last non-release-note
commit looks like it was in late February; however, we're freezing our 
3.8-based release this week.  That's nearly 4 months after the branch
and more than 2 months after the last upstream fix.
