The problem is that one of the main TinyOS targets, AVR, has no LLVM
backend. The other main target, MSP430, has a backend that is slowly
becoming useful but doesn't quite work yet.
Maybe an AVR backend would be a better project?
Also, I'm not convinced that compiling via C is a problem for nesC. For
some languages, there is substantial lost efficiency, but most of nesC is
syntactically and semantically identical to C so there's little or no
