As a quick summary, when we moved from gold to lld at Google we found
that nearly every link sped up by a significant amount and took less
memory. The only area that was a concern is gdb_index creation used
more memory and slowed down the link, but it was still faster than
gold. The range of binaries that sped up was everything from simple
unit tests to large binaries.
