FWIW, in addition to amd64 (aka x86_64) FreeBSD is also using it as
the default linker for armv7, and it has been the default linker for
arm64 for some time. This is probably more detail than needed in
release notes, although it's a useful indication that lld is a viable
production quality linker on multiple CPU architectures.

(Also, we haven't fully switched i386 to lld just yet, because of some
outstanding breakage in the ports tree; there's a reasonable amount of
software that doesn't build with -fPIC or has non-PIC i386 assembly
and conflicts with lld's default of disallowing .text relocations.)
