[llvm-dev] running intrinsics from C code

GCCBuiltin just gives it a name for clang to lookup. Generally they match
up with builtins that gcc also implements, but that's not a requirement.

If you add a builtin with the same name to the builtin file in clang's
include/clang/Basic/Builtins*.def then they will find each other.

You can also just add a builtin to clang's builtin file and catch it in
clang's lib/CodeGen/CGBuiltins.cpp and implement whatever IR you want
including calling an intrinsic.

Hope this helps.
