AMD driver sucks anyways. Anyone who want decent Linux support should get an nvidia card.
It so happens that the kernel runs your cpus, not LLVM.

That has absolutely nothing to do with the kernel's cpu support. Without the kernel's cpu support:
a) it may not boot
b) you may not get any power-saving
c) you may not get full performance
d) you may not get sensor data
