The symbols for the parts of eCos you use will be include in the final
image. So if you use parts of the kernel, the debug symbols for those
parts will be included.

I think you mean hello.elf or how ever you can it. It will not be
hello.o since that is the object code for hello.c. 

As i keep saying, the debug symbols for the parts of eCos you use will
be in the final image.
