           Summary: TargetMachine is not thread safe (but it really should
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk

When doing parallel CodeGen we currently have to create a TargetMachine
per-thread because TargetMachine is not thread-safe.
This is a waste, and it would be nice if it can be avoided. 
Also, having an immutable TargetMachine is a preliminary step needed if we want
at some point parallelize the backend.

Eric pointed out the least amount of work needed:
* Handle resetTargetOptions first (at least)
* An optional lock on getSubtarget

The subtarget itself should be fine, and if not, it should be fixed.
