Actually, as far as I know (and as far as my tests have shown), you can 
build assembly (both inline and standalone .S files) into bitcode just 
fine, as long as it is built via the clang frontend with -fembed-bitcode 
(calling as directly will not work). IIRC the assembly is just bundled as 
such within the bitcode.
