RADEON --
As of a few days ago in the latest LLVM development code is support in the AMDGPU back-end for using the new linker.

Thanks to this work by AMD's Tom Stellard, the AMDGPU back-end now supports LLVM's new linker.

This change along with many other -- more user-facing -- improvements to the AMDGPU back-end will be found in the LLVM 3.8 release due out in February. LLVM 3.8 is expected to be branched from trunk later this week.
