Validating with LLVM

Hello GHC Devs,

I'm working on a very tiny patch for GHC. The patch concerns the LLVM code
generator, and I'd like to run the validate script. ./validate ignores mk/ (which is probably correct) and it doesn't seem to be using the
LLVM backend. LLVM tools are on the PATH; I'm working from the ghc-8.4
branch so I'm using LLVM 5.

Is it possible to validate with the LLVM backend? If not, what's considered
a sufficiently thorough test? Apologies if I'm missing something obvious.
