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.

After a quiet period, we've had some new patch submissions this week. Three were submitted, though D38778 (support for the PowerPC Signal Processing Engine) has actually had reviews since being submitted. Thanks Nemanja Ivanovic!
