Hi Eyal,

  Yes, the linker could suppress these warnings.  But the important point
  is that it is not at all clear that the linker should suppress them.
  The warnings are important, and the real way to get rid of them is to
  fix the code that is triggering them.

  Now I appreciate that this is not always possible.  But as pointed out
  in PR 12017 there are several ways to work around the problem without
  modifying the linker.  My stance is: why introduce new code, and 
  potentially new bugs, to the linker when there are other ways of solving
  the problem.

  So, if you do want to get a change like this in, I think that you are
  going to need to drum up some support from the community.  If enough
  people agree with you, then I will make the necessary changes.  One
  important point however is that you ought to make sure that the LLVM
  community agrees with the idea too, and that they are willing to put
  it into their linker (LLD).
