Ok, thanks for all the info.
I will say in passing that this made things confusing for me from a
gold target's perspective. It seemd to me that the whole point of
having seperate global and local Scan methods is that relocations are
processed differently for STB_LOCAL vs. STB_GLOBAL symbols.
So, from this perspective, this forced local case adds at least a
small wrinkle. Imagine my surprise while debugging that a gsym seen
in global relocation scanning ended up STB_LOCAL in the final symbol
Anyways, thanks again Ian.
