Well currently the report log is 7Meg and I'm sure everyone would
appreciate it if I kept those to myself.

Currently the state of play can be seen from the patches listed

These are the patches that currently need to be applied to GHC
git HEAD to build it against LLVM git head.

The first, 00-configure-3.8.patch switches GHC from using LLVM
3.7 to using 3.8.

The second, 01-bitcast.patch is needed because the syntax of
the bitcast operation has changed in some situations.

The number of tests failing with this setup is the same as the
number failing with GHC git head compiled against the 3.7 (and
3.6) release of LLVM.
