I have the above.

But not this..

No.  The hidden visibility is coming from defstd.cc

  {
    "__ehdr_start",		// name
    elfcpp::PT_LOAD,		// segment_type
    elfcpp::PF(0),		// segment_flags_set
    elfcpp::PF(0),		// segment_flags_clear
    0,				// value
    0,				// size
    elfcpp::STT_NOTYPE,		// type
    elfcpp::STB_GLOBAL,		// binding
    elfcpp::STV_HIDDEN,		// visibility
    0,				// nonvis
    Symbol::SEGMENT_START,	// offset_from_base
    true			// only_if_ref
  },

Do you have some local change here?
