LLVM alpha backend removal

The Alpha backend I wrote is being removed from LLVM. Almost no one uses it and there is no reasonable speed hardware to use to maintain it. I primarily wrote it to do hardware/software code-design research, and it served thar purpose well. There are now simulators for more mainstream architectures, so the backend isn't as useful as when I wrote it.
