Being able to set the default target to be used is a fairly
fundamental issue in building a cross compiler. Even if we implement
all of the "universal driver" proposal, it would still be necessary to
set the default somehow.

That is not the problem. The problem is that it will return a plain
"arm" instead of armv7. I should be able to configure clang with
on any host and have "./Debug/bin/clang -S test.c " use movw/movt.
The actual name of the configure option is not very important, but
there should be a way.
