Thanks for this post, ĸen.

Long ago, I have commented something like that. I use nvidia proprietary
in one system (which I am using to write this), do not have radeon, and
it does not seem I need installing llvm. I wonder if it would be good to
add the word "only" just before "required", in the "Warning", with
respect to radeon versus llvm, but perhaps it is necessary for something
else and is left like that just in case.
