It also precludes the possibility of backports, so as far as my use case
is concerned, it doesn't solve the problem. It could be done in
addition to the ifuncs/PLT solution to phase out the symbols in future
if there is consensus on that. That is not an immediate interest for
me, at least not for the next 5 years or so.
