% ld.lld -shared --gc-sections -o libempty.so empty.o
ld.lld: ../../../include/llvm/Support/Casting.h:104: static bool
llvm::isa_impl_cl<To, const From*>::doit(const From*) [with To =
lld::elf::InputSectionBase; From = lld::elf::SectionBase]: Assertion `Val &&
"isa<> used on a null pointer"' failed.
The assertion is triggered via the cast in . The symbol for which it fails
is _binary_empty_bin_size, which is absolute and has a null Section.
I'm using the first ld.lld command because it was how I came across the issue;
I believe it would generalize to any SHN_ABS symbol, however. I'm not sure if
there are scenarios in which a non-absolute symbol would trigger the assertion.
