[gold patch] Fix problem with --export-dynamic-symbol and versioned symbols

The --dynamic-list and --export-dynamic-symbol options can trigger an
internal error in Symbol_table::sized_finalize_symbol() if a named
symbol is referenced with a version from a dynamic object. In that
case, we try to force a dynamic symbol table entry for the versioned
symbol in the dynamic object. This patch fixes the problem by forcing
the dynamic symbol table entry only after checking that the symbol is
defined in a non-shared object.

Tested on x86_64. OK to commit?

	* (Symbol::should_add_dynsym_entry): Check for relocatable
