[llvm-dev] [RFC] Support embedding bitcodes in LLD with LTO

Hi everybody!

I'm Josef and I'm working at Oracle Labs on Sulong [1,2], the LLVM IR 
execution engine in GraalVM [3]. In addition to executing bare bitcode 
files, Sulong also accepts ELF files with embedded bitcode sections. 
Therefore, it would be great if LLD in (Full)LTO mode would support 
embedding bitcode sections to the resulting object file. Is that 
something that would be considered useful and worth contributing?
