What you mean as "LLVM PIC documentation"? What should be included there?

>From TargetMachine.cpp (actually this is show in llc --help):

    clEnumValN(Reloc::Default, "default",
               "Target default relocation model"),
    clEnumValN(Reloc::Static, "static",
               "Non-relocatable code"),
    clEnumValN(Reloc::PIC_, "pic",
               "Fully relocatable, position independent code"),
    clEnumValN(Reloc::DynamicNoPIC, "dynamic-no-pic",
               "Relocatable external references, non-relocatable code"),
