[cfe-dev] clang fails to build with latest LLVM revision

This morning I did an update of both my LLVM and clang trees.  Now  
clang doesn't compile:

llvm[1]: Compiling CGExprComplex.cpp for Debug build
In member function ‘void llvm::GetElementPtrInst::init(llvm::Value*,  
InputIterator, InputIterator, const std::string&,  
std::random_access_iterator_tag) [with InputIterator =  
459:   instantiated from  
InputIterator, InputIterator, const std::string&, llvm::Instruction*)  
[with InputIterator = llvm::Constant*]’
LLVMBuilder.h:223:   instantiated from ‘llvm::GetElementPtrInst*  
llvm::LLVMBuilder::CreateGEP(llvm::Value*, InputIterator,  
InputIterator, const char*) [with InputIterator = llvm::Constant*]’
CGExprComplex.cpp:194:   instantiated from here
404: error: no matching function for call to  
‘llvm::GetElementPtrInst::init(llvm::Value*&, llvm::Constant*,  
390: note: candidates are: void  
llvm::GetElementPtrInst::init(llvm::Value*, llvm::Value* const*,  
unsigned int)
391: note:                 void  
llvm::GetElementPtrInst::init(llvm::Value*, llvm::Value*)
make[1]: *** [/Volumes/Data/Users/kremenek/dev/src/llvm/tools/clang/ 
CodeGen/Debug/CGExprComplex.o] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 1

The revision numbers for the trees are as follows:

(kremenek at grue:llvm)$ svn update
At revision 41699.

(kremenek at grue:clang)$ svn update
At revision 41699.

It appears that the signature for GetElementPtrInst::init has  
changed.  I can look into fixing this, but I'm not super savvy on the  
latest changes to the LLVM tree and how those changes effect the  
CodeGen component of clang.
