I've pushed a revised version that hopefully should address Jeff's
wish/need of being able to experiment with this out of core. There's now
a "jit_provider" PGC_POSTMASTER GUC that's by default set to
"llvmjit". llvmjit.so is the .so implementing JIT using LLVM. It fills a
set of callbacks via
extern void _PG_jit_provider_init(JitProviderCallbacks *cb);
which can also be implemented by any other potential provider.

The other two biggest changes are that I've added a README
and that I've revised the configure support so it does more error
checks, and moved it into config/llvm.m4.

There's a larger smattering of small changes too.

I'm pretty happy with how the separation of core / shlib looks now. I'm
planning to work on cleaning and then pushing some of the preliminary
patches (fixed tupledesc, grouping) over the next few days.
