There's enough AArch64 to allow lld to self-host and to finish a build
of the base system on FreeBSD. Last we (I and Rafael) checked, it was
mid-june timeframe, but nothing changed since then.

There have been several (many?) fixes for LTO in the last 6 months.
For full LTO, I'd say that the infrastructure is complete (modulo bugs
we discover from time to time). There are plans to implement Thin, but
that will require some work.
