looks good. I hope only --clang will be used from time to time.
Today, indeed, --llc* are needed too.

btw, our experimental libbpfprog.so (which is clang and llvm libs
compiled into single .so with C api for compiling .c into bpf):
$ ls -lh libbpfprog.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 ast ast 31M Jun  9 16:49 libbpfprog.so

not tiny, but I think we should be able to include it into perf,
then perf will only have build dependencies on llvm instead of
run-time dependencies.
We'll release this lib as soon as it's a bit more stable.
