Status of AVX support


Can anyone provide insight on the current status of the AVX support in
LLVM 2.8? I gather from the release notes that the MC assembler
supports it, and clang added support for it.

Does clang support mean intrinsics only, or is there support for
lowering of some sort of gcc vector extension?

If I generate llvm vector instructions, is there support to emit 128
or 256b AVX instructions assuming I run the jit on appropriate sandy
bridge hardware?
