[llvm-dev] Buildbots do not detect test-suite failures!!!

It has just been brought to my attention that our buildbots no longer
report failures to compile/link files in the test-suite as failures for the
build. As a result, we have at least one bot that is currently showing a
green status, yet it aborts when building 3 test cases.

I assume that something has changed with how (presumably LNT) reports these
failures and the Zorg code does not adequately detect this (I think the
buildbot scripts grep for a string such as "FAIL:" in the log or something
along those lines). Previously, a failure to compile would show up as two
failures (a failure at compile time and a failure at link time). Now it
just shows up as NOEXE.

This really seems like something we should fix ASAP.

For an example:

The Vector-build test case shows up as NOEXE and we're clearly hitting an
UNREACHABLE while compiling the test:

Unexpected node to lower
UNREACHABLE executed at ...
