It's a little weirder than that, because Rust apparently grabbed LLVM
and Clang from their respective trunks, rather than release_31, after the
branch point.  So there are a bunch of commits[*] that would be dropped if
it switched to the 3.1 final version, but I don't know if those matter.

The simple, low-impact alternative is to just pull up that one commit, thusly:

...but that wouldn't fix anyone else's problems.


[*] `git rev-list origin/release_31..9b94cd1 | wc -l` => 150
    `git log origin/master..origin/release_31 | grep -c '^ *Merging r[0-9]*:$'` => 23
