LLVM's Clang Turns On OpenMP Support By Default

LLVM --
As of today, the latest LLVM code now turns on OpenMP support by default.

Back in September LLVM Clang 3.7 brought OpenMP 3.1 support but it wasn't configured on by default. With this latest change to LLVM, OpenMP support will now be enabled by default.

For runtime support you'll also need to build LLVM's libomp library (their equivalent of GCC's libgomp).

I've been meaning to run some fresh LLVM Clang OpenMP benchmarks so now I guess it's about time.
