Pull request #3554 - [CMake] Build LLVM from the submodule if there's no suitable version
[CMake] Build LLVM from the submodule if there's no suitable version
When RPCS3 is compiled with LLVM (default option), CMake only tries to
find LLVM on the default system installation. So the OS must have a
sytstem-wide installation of LLVM of at least version 4.0, which is not
available on many GNU/Linux distributions (e.g. Ubuntu 16.04, Debian
Stretch). If CMake can not find a suitable version, it silently falls
back to compile RPCS3 without LLVM.
This patch makes CMake defaults to compile the LLVM submodule if and
only if a suitable LLVM version is not found installed on the system.
Due to a build time check on LLVM, in-tree builds will not work when
building the submodule (LLVM does not allow in-source builds). For this
reason, the instruction for building on CMake were updated.
