[llvm-dev] RFC: Revisiting LLD-as-a-library design

As one of the people working on the new Mach-O backend, my main concerns are:

  1.  The Mach-O backend is still very much in flux, and will likely remain so until the end of this year. Whoever undertakes this library-fication should sync up with us to avoid e.g. awkward merge conflicts.
  2.  Performance is very important to us, and this library-fication should not regress it. Right now, we don't have a good benchmarking service set up (the LNT server only benchmarks LLD-ELF); we've been mostly just profiling things locally. I can send these benchmarking instructions to whomever takes on this effort.
