[gold commit] PR 16979: Don't let default version in a shared object override prior unversioned definition in another shared object

In PR 16979, a reference to malloc is being resolved to an unversioned
reference in When linked with --as-needed, however, the
dynamic table does not list as a DT_NEEDED library.

If we have a reference to an unversioned symbol in a shared object,
and we later see a versioned definition in another shared object, we
were overriding the first definition with the second in the process of
defining the default version. As a result, we no longer think that the
first shared object was actually needed to resolve any symbols, and we
don't list it as a DT_NEEDED library.

This patch fixes the problem by treating the two definitions as separate
symbols, so the second definition does not override the first.
