What’s the “test-compilation of OpenCL programs”?  Are we just talking
about the test suite?

Either way, I guess my main points are (1) it’d be nice to add a comment
on why we’re using Clang, and (2) if we can use GCC instead, that should
be our default choice.  I’m not saying we should address this right
away, but we should keep it in mind.
