That is correct.  Mainline poolalloc will compile with the LLVM 2.6
branch instead of LLVM mainline for the foreseeable future.  This is
because 1) we want to make a "release" of poolalloc that works with LLVM
2.6 so that there is a poolalloc/SAFECode version that works with an
LLVM release; and 2) I believe the LLVM API is changing again in
mainline, and LLVM 2.6 seems like a good point at which to synchronize
and stop.

I think we'll create a release_26 branch for poolalloc in the future,
but I'm not sure when.  That is something we can discuss in the next few
