I think it may worth to update information on next page:

It says: "The ELF support is in progress and is able to link large programs such as Clang or LLD itself. Unless your program depends on linker scripts, you can expect it to be linkable with LLD. ...".
I noticed that people are sharing this link when talk about LLD. It may lead to little misunderstanding, since I think linkerscripts are not a problem anymore. Also probably wording "in progress" may be changed so something more close to "mostly complete" ?
