'check-all' is still killing the machine but I think I know what the problem is. While investigating some of the rc2 problems I noticed that g++-multilib wasn't installed and this was disabling the mips64el sanitizers. Installing this didn't cause problems at the time but I've noticed that some of the mips64el sanitizer tests are very memory hungry. I noticed several occasions where parallel asan tests were consuming ~200% of RAM and it would have been swapping heavily (on a USB2 disk) to cope. If later tests require even more RAM then it would explain why the system stops responding. I'm going to uninstall g++-multilib and rebuild rc3. Hopefully that will make check-all work again.

For now, I've commented out the check-all command and uploaded clang+llvm-3.8.0-rc3-mipsel-linux-gnu.tar.xz (sha1sum: e280bf6db094a81f22f4cdf6c0b5955493a11b05). I'm going to run this through my usual test-suites and I should have the results by this evening.
