Re: [AArch64] Use SYMBOL_REFERENCES_LOCAL in one symbol check

Some new information, I see that when building the dynamic
linker/loader (part of the glibc build), when using your patch I get
this error that I did not get before.

aarch64-linux-gnu-gcc -mabi=lp64   -nostdlib -nostartfiles -shared -o /home/sellcey/toolchain/obj/glibc64/elf/            \    
          -Wl,-z,combreloc -Wl,-z,relro -Wl,--hash-style=both -Wl,-z,defs       \
