[PATCH] BFD: Prevent writing the MIPS _gp_disp symbol into symbol tables

The _gp_disp is a magic symbol, always implicitly defined by the linker.
It does not make a sense to write it into symbol tables for output files.
Moreover, now if the linker gets a version script, the _gp_disp symbol
gets zero version definition index.  The zero index means[1]:

"The symbol is local, not available outside the object."

But the _gp_disp symbol has GLOBAL binding.  That confuses some tools like
for example the LLD linker when they get such files as inputs.

This patch fixes the problem - it prevents writing the _gp_disp symbol
in regular and dynamic symbol tables.

This was tested by running ls test suite on mipsel-linux board.

    Version Table", p. 32
