[CFT]: ClangBSD is selfhosting, we need testers now

i might have stumbled upon a problem with clang. i've compiled a kernel from
the clang branch using `make kernel INSTKERNNAME=clang` and booted from it.
i'm now experiencing audio problems with mp3s and certain video files.
playback is awfully slow and the audio output gets distorted massively. `top`
however reports no high cpu load and `vmstat -i` doesn't report anything
unusual either.

this problem doesn't occur with a regular gcc-kernel.

both kernels are running under a regular (gcc) world.

i thought it might be a problem with acpi, but disabling acpi
(hint.acpi.0.disabled=1) gives me a system freeze.
