[meson][PATCH] meson: Allow for llvm-native tools to be used

Fred Baksik

I created a bbappend to build the LLVM recipe so that all the libraries were available for use on the host.
These libraries are then used by a host/sdk tool to prepare binary files for use by an application on the target.
When building our tool using meson it wasn't able to find the Yocto built LLLVM libraries.
This fixes the issue so meson uses the correct llvm-config tool.
