Hi H.J.  Hi Uli,

: ELF_ST_OTHER is removed from gABI. ELF_ST_OTHER was meant to work
: like ELF_ST_INFO. But it doesn't make much sense here since we
: only have ELF_ST_VISIBILITY in st_other. We voted to remove it
: from gABI for the time being. Feel free to remove it altogether.

I have followed your recommendations and removed ELF_ST_OTHER
entirely.  I did add a comment to common.h saying that the other bits
were not currently used and should be set to zero.
