The root cause of this is that the mips linker synthesizes a special

in _bfd_mips_elf_finish_dynamic_symbol? Perhaps the same for other
syms there too?
Because that doesn't work. Perhpas I should have been a bit more
detailed in my description of what is happening (at least in one case).
If the version script contains something like:
Then "__RLD_MAP" gets hidden and we never see it in
This hiding gets done precisely in _bfd_elf_link_assign_sym_version()
after the version information is calculated. So as the patch stands, we
bail out of _bfd_elf_link_assign_sym_version() before the symbol is
hidden (or modified in any way).
It is possible that 'no_sym_version' is not the best name for the flag,
but I think we really some sort of flag to exclude ABI symbols from
being mangled in _bfd_elf_link_assign_sym_version().
