I definitely like both of these options...

>> 4.) Revert this change
> This change has been actively discussed on the mailing list (http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/llvm-commits/Week-of-Mon-20140414/212869.html) and IRC. This seemed to be the best approach especially with the merge with aarch64.
