Agreed.  The validator will only run about once every 100 commits, and
maybe less frequent than that.  I don't know what Daniel's plans are.

I'm not going to get into that game.  For now we may ave to forego 
llvm-test.  Only when it passes EVERYTHING will I make it a
validation criteria.

Is there some fundamental reason llvm-test doesn't pass everything or
is it just a matter of getting people to fix bugs?  If it's the former
perhaps we should XFAIL some tests.
