I think this might be the appropriate fix:

elf_tdata (info->output_bfd)->has_gnu_symbols = TRUE;
This would mark a binary that merely linked against a shared library
having gnu_unique symbols. The binary would not even have to
reference such symbols.
Oh, that would be wrong indeed.
I'm not sure your premise is correct anyway. STB_GNU_UNIQUE seems to
be relevant to the definition of a symbol, not a reference. Which
leads me to think that ld probably should not give undefined symbols
an STB_GNU_UNIQUE binding.
Sorry, I have no idea how to implement that. Should I file a bug so
that this issue isn't lost?
