Nitpick: do we want to use the CLANG_VERSION notation? In some cases I
think it is easier to simply use directly the original values (like I
did in compiler_attributes.h for gcc).

Consider that we almost never need the patchlevel (and if we do, it is
better to *see* we are explicitly testing for it), and given the
versioning schemes that compilers nowadays use (i.e. only major
versions), I would bet not even the minor (except maybe for GCC in
compiler_attributes.h until we drop gcc < 5).

Cheers,
Miguel
