Sorry about that. I had tested the patch, but only an isolated binutils build.
This particular test needs an ARM compiler to be present, which was why I did
not detect the problem before.
I have checked in a simple fix that marks the test as an expected failure for
the ARM and AArch64 toolchains. The issue is that the test expects all global
symbols to be stripped from an object file, but the patch ensures that mapping
symbols remain, thus invalidating the test.

(objcopy_test_without_global_symbol): Expect this test to fail on
the AArch64 and ARM targets, since they preserve their mapping
