Description

The change to the new-code-generator seems to have broken the LLVM backend's ability to bootstrap GHC. This should be fixed, especially as ARM support is only provided by LLVM.

NOTE: The testing of this is all currently done on Mac OS X 10.8. Although we will expand to test other platforms once OSX is working.

So running testsuite now but LLVM 3.1 seems to bootstrap GHC fine. At least enough to run the testsuite with everything seeming to pass so far... Must be problems in LLVM 3.2 more than the new-code-generator.
