This is a bit different than what I was proposing.  This is using LLVM as
the backend of the C compiler used to build the C source code of the Erlang
interpreter.

I am suggesting LLVM could be used to compile BEAM bytecode to native code,
enabling faster execution.  I'm aware HiPE already offers native code
compilation.
