[llvm-dev] lld and linker scripts

I tried to use linker script with lld (this script works just file with GNU
ld). I got a problem with defining new symbols and assign values
(addresses) to them. For instance I got the following code in the linker
  _exec_sym = 0;
After using lld command with the --script option I got the following error:
line 3: : expected, but got =
  _exec_sym = 0;
As a result I couldn't define new symbol. Also the PROVIDE expression is
not supported. I believe I got a latest lld sources from the "git clone
http://llvm.org/git/lld.git" repository, but maybe I'm missing something.

Is it possible to define (assign values) symbols in the linker script?
Do we have any documentation for the linker script support in llvm/lld?

Thanks a lot, Dima.
