What you call llvm asm is named llvm IR, for Intermediate 


The IR's an assembly-style language that is then translated to 
the native assembly language for your architecture.  In practice, 
you don't have to worry about the IR, as llvm comes with such 
assembly translation backends for many architectures, so you 
almost never have to deal with the IR itself.
