No, it is not available for runtime linking either.
STV_HIDDEN was introduced, so that you can have variables and functions which
can be used by any of the objects which are linked into a shared library,
but it is not visible outside of the library.
Without that, you can have either static ones, which can be used only by
the object defining it, or global which are then visible outside
of the library (unless you use symbol versioning, that is).
