[lld] Remove special cases from default ld driver mode.

Authored by danalbert on Apr 24 2020, 4:31 PM.



Use the Gnu driver mode by default for all platforms when ld is
invoked. Other names for the program (such as link or ld64) continue
working as before.

I think this should be fine. While the Darwin linker is indeed called ld as well, anyone who's using LLD for Darwin should be going through the Clang driver with -fuse-ld=lld, which will continue to do the right thing.

I think this behavior was carried over from the previous version of lld, but I believe this would cause confusion than being convenient. This is also against our general policy to make cross-linking easier, which is "lld should not change the behavior on which OS it is running".
