Btw, unrelated to the topic at hand, but related to monorepo builds in 
general, as I've brought up some time before - it'd be great for various 
reasons to be able to do such a build (building the tools, not the 
runtimes) by pointing cmake directly at the llvm-project root instead of 
at the llvm subdir.

Last time this was brought up, Chris [1] mentioned that it'd be doable, 
but would require a bit of work to make the produced files 
(<builddir>/bin/clang etc) end up in the root of the build dir, instead of 
in a subdir, like <builddir>/llvm/bin/clang. My cmake-fu is a bit too weak 
to easily pinpoint what needs to be fixed to proceed with this though...
