Hello llvm\lld,

The autlolink feature in swift appends a section to the obj files
(.swift1_autolink_entries) that is later need to determine what t link
against in the final linked binary.

I am trying to get rid of these section in the final linked binary at link
time. I understand this could be done with (llvm-objcopy
 --remove-section=.swift1_autolink_entries) but would like have the linker
do it.

Is there an attribute I can set in that section that the linker can safely
drop such a section?

Thank you,
