I believe there was a post on the Tweag IO blog suggesting linear types
work might make 8.4.1. If not true it might be worth saying this is coming
post 8.4.1 but I guess that's true of lots of things.
On the bug section of the status page it has "Implement Improved LLVM
backend". It might be worth mentioning that in the highlights section if it
is still on track.
