It doesn't need to be "exported" (as in: present in the dynamic
symbol table). It does need to be present at least in the 'regular'
symbol table, which it already is (so long as is not

I think you are looking for it in the "wrong" library.

I agree.

I think you need to clarify exactly what you mean by "exported".

If you mean "visible to GDB via symbol table", then it already is.

If you mean "visible to GDB via symbol table even when libgcc_s is
stripped (by 'exporting it' via dynamic symbol table)", then I
don't know if that's feasible. GDB on Linux already requires to not be stripped, or thread debugging doesn't work.
