Under these conditions I don't have any great ideas either. Obviously,
the right way to do it[tm] is to find someone willing to become llvm
upstream contributor/maintainer with a standing to get our patches in.
I've tried something similar on a much lower level on several occasions
and can say that it's a major undertaking that will gobble that someone
up. So I'm not volunteering.

I haven't forgotten about the "switch to cmake"-part of Bug #538364 but seem
to have trouble motivating myself to touch it since the current scheme
works reasonably well. :-/
