Yes, that is what I would normally do. The issue is that a user
changing from also-emit-llvm to emit-llvm or from llvm-ld to gold
would have to change the output file name. Not a bit problem, just a
small annoyance.

Just because of the above. In the end I think you are right, and it is
better to just use the "-o" value  if given emit-llvm. I will update
the patch.
