[llvm-dev] Users of MIPS and PowerPC backends in production-class projects?

We're still working to get FreeBSD fully building for PowerPC with
clang, and have been in a state of "almost there" for some time now.
There are two methods of doing so, one is using the in-tree binutils
(2.17.50+patches), which has been patched to support newer relocations
LLVM generates; the other is using an external toolchain binutils
(2.25?).  We've had luck with both, and will be looking at lld in the
future as well.
