Hello all,

LLVM 9.0 has just been released.

The most relevant piece for us is that Alex's LLVM RISC-V fork from
lowRISC is now successfully upstreamed and RISC-V is now an official
backend! So we don't need to use lowRISC's version of LLVM anymore.

Some other interesting facts but less relevant is that LLVM can now
build the mainline Linux kernel (the Linux kernel for the longest time
could only be exclusively built with gcc but that's changed now).
