I have machines ready to test ARM on Linux. They're reasonably stable, and
there's more than one, so it should be pretty uneventful.

We currently have check-all and test-suite bots running, so that shouldn't
be a problem.

I haven't tested dragonegg and other tools on our boards yet. Sylvestre
runs some of those tests on his lab, and he now has some ARM boards, but
that might not be ready for the release process.

If all else fail, and we can't test something, Is it possible to officially
release just LLVM+Clang this time?
