I'd rather merge llvm-project 13.0.0 to stable/12, but I didn't want to
do this just before 12.3 wrapped, and it's also a bit of a hassle to
figure out all the cherry-pickings... Since stable/12 lags behind on
many other build infrastructure improvements, some commits don't apply

I hope to get some of this done during the coming holidays, if I don't
get distracted too much by Quality Time stuff. ;)
