New LLD linker for ELF

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Since last year, we have been working to rewrite the ELF support in LLD, the LLVM linker, to create a high-performance linker that works as a drop-in replacement for the GNU linker. It is now able to bootstrap LLVM, Clang, and itself and pass all tests on x86-64 Linux and FreeBSD. The new ELF linker is small and fast; it is currently fewer than 10k lines of code and about 2x faster than GNU gold linker.

In order to achieve this performance, we made a few important decisions in the design. This talk will present the design and the performance of the new ELF LLD.
