llvm-ld ???

What was llvm-ld and why was it removed?

I see this reference regarding the Eclipse plugin for llvm.


It was was a strange mix of llvm-link and a system linker. It was
removed because llvm-link is sufficient for testing and as a developer
tool, but llvm-ld was not even close to being a full system linker.

The use cases covered by llvm-ld should be handled by
* libLTO when using ld64 on OS X
* The gold plugin when using gold or very new versions of bfd ld.
* lld.
