This needs to be fixed.   Originally, ever run of the linker would have a step were it wrote to native and read that back in.  That makes sense for test cases, but not for a production linker.  

We could add a flag to LinkingContext which triggers Driver::link() to side step through native format, then let the drivers decide whether to set the flag or not.
