It seems that that's more or less the same problem as TH, a full solution
needs a multitarget compiler. It needs to be solved at an earlier stage
than LLVM if we want to be able to optimize for one of the architectures
(for example using new instructions) in the implementation of primops (even
more so if future iOS devices might require x86 or 64 bit code)
