I /think/ that change is only on Windows - I /think/ Clang on Linux
still runs a separate driver and frontend?

There are some tips (many things have a .dump method that prints some interesting info, and we also have some pretty-printers for gdb in llvm/utils/gdb-scripts/prettyprinters.py), but otherwise you just use GDB like normal.
