So let me add some of the informations I gathered:
- llvm-3.5 will leave unstable before the release. I've been told today
  the chance are exactly zero that it will remain.
- I stumbled over https://llvm.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=9605 saying and
  I quote "THe MCJIT is working for PPC64 only.".
  I'm going to ping him if something changed or will change but it
  matches our (or better your) observation.
- I was going to check your testcase on llvm-3.7 and snapshots but llvm
  failed to build on powerpc. So I can't.

So no lack of functionality. Does not sound that bad compared to broken
clambc in unstable like we have it right now.
