Subject: mcm native compile and llvm.

1) In case you missed the #musl irc backscroll, building current mcm tip of tree
works but building native compilers with the results fails unless you add to patches/gcc-11.2.0
list, which is the exact same fix they applied upstream:;h=4fde88e5dd152fe866a97b12e0f8229970d15cb3

So it's basically a backport. Attached is the one I used, which Worked For Me.

(P.S. Apparently gcc 11.2.0 build breaks configuring libstdc++ on a machine that
hasn't got floating point support, so even the _cross_ armv7r toolchain doesn't
build anymore. Possibly I need to beat soft float out of it in the config
somewhere? Oh well...)

2) I have an old blog entry:

Where I was building clang/llvm compilers, which resulted in this patch against
musl (ported to current git):

Because llvm uses different tuple names from the gnu/dammit stuff and it might
be nice to support both? (Is anybody else out there building musl clang
toolchains? I fished a hexagon build out of qemu's test infrastructure, and I
got pointed at google fuchsia doing x86 and arm, but that's 3 architectures
total and the hexagon build broke when I pulled a newer llvm...)
