Re: Support for ELF's STT_COMMON symbol type
I think STT_COMMON should be enabled by default. But we only
generate it when
.type foo, %common
is used. Given that gcc doesn't generate it, it should be OK.
I think that would be a bad idea because then we would have two types of
commons inside bfd. Those that had had ".type %common" set for them and those
that had not. Such a situation would be far too likely to create new bugs in
