Nearly. A couple of bugs: You were only defining bfd_elf32_close_and_cleanup 
for the symbian configuration, and and 
unrecord_section_with_arm_elf_section_data was trying to free() memory not 
allocated with malloc.

Updated patch attached.

	PR 1147
	* elf32-arm.c (bfd_elf32_close_and_cleanup): Define.
	(elf32_arm_close_and_cleanup): New function - walk over the
	sections in the bfd that is being closed removing them from the
	list of recorded sections.
	(unrecord_section_via_map_over_sections): New helper function.
	(unrecord_section_with_arm_elf_section_data): Remove call to free.

	* elfxx-target.h (bfd_elfNN_close_and_cleanup): Only define if not
	already defined by the target.
