Indeed that is the option that I am investigating. I have opened #16084
[1] and an msys2 [2] ticket to track this. Unfortunately, GCC shipped
with msys2 doesn't currently support -fuse-ld=lld, so we are stuck with
ld.bfd until GCC 9 is released. However, even then it sounds like 
lld <8 and mingw aren't known to interact well.

All-in-all, moving to lld sounds like a good long-term direction but
won't be viable for at least a few months.
