I've got a simple buildworld going but I expect that
it will end up using lld in a form that runs into
the problem. But I may luck out since I can link a
trivial main to produce an a.out for amd64.

It may be appropriate to have notes somewhere about
what to do for folks that land in the range -r325320
to whatever revision the updated
contrib/llvm/lib/Support/Unix/Path.inc ends up at
and that also have a zfs filesystem context involved.

I'll let you know if the build completes vs. not. It
takes a while since llvm materials are rebuilding.
