Clang Now Supports Targeting The NaCl OS

Added to the latest LLVM Clang compiler code is driver support for Google's Native Client SDK.

Google Native Client is the sandboxing tech built into the Chrome browser and ChromeOS for running native code within the web-browser at near-native speeds.

With the latest Clang code -- in conjunction with the latest Google Native Client SDK for x86/x86_64/ARM -- is support for Clang to target generating code for NaCl on these architectures.

This addition to Clang for native NaCl targeting was made with this commit and will be part of the next LLVM release, LLVM/Clang 3.7.
