Review corner

The LLVM Weekly review corner serves to highlight patches that are stuck waiting awaiting review, or work from first-time contributors. See here for more information and how to submit you work for inclusion. Of course the hope is that highlighting these patches will enable LLVM Weekly readers will step up and help to get them merged. I'll be reporting back each week on any activity generated on these patches, as well as sharing a new batch. If you want your patch included you must submit it via the linked form.

No new patch submissions this week, but thanks to "Cameron", Hal Finkel, and Richard Smith for contributing review comments to last week's patches. Nikolai Kosjar is still looking for a code review of D39903.
