Re: [PATCH 2/4] Handle copy relocations

Yes, thanks for mentioning that.

Pedro> I'm surprised to find no tests in this patch?

The existing Ada exception-catching tests cover this, so I didn't add a
new test.

Pedro>  FAIL: gdb.base/print-file-var.exp: hidden=1: dlopen=0: version_id_main=0: 'print-file-var-lib2.c'::this_version_id == v2

I haven't investigated the other failures yet, but I think this one in
particular is an existing bug in c-exp.y.  What happens is that this
does not actually look up the symbol from that source file!  Instead it
finds the symbol in print-file-var-lib1.c.

I think applying the appended probably makes sense.  This rules out
symbols where the corresponding minsym is hidden.
