Allright, this turned out to be a BFD bug, not an elfutils bug.
Fixed with the binutils commit below.

bfd,sparc: fix the .dynsym sh_index when stripping all symbols in ld
The SPARC ELF BFD backend uses a hack in order to accomodate the
STT_REGISTER symbols mandated by the SPARC V9 ABI for 64-bit objects.
The hack works as follows:
- Early in `size_dynamic_symbols', it adds the dynamic STT_REGISTER
symbols and the corresponding DT_SPARC_REGISTER tags if needed,
i.e. if the input object has been annotated by the assembler to use
any of the global registers requiring annotations by the ABI.
The STT_REGISTER symbols are not local, but nevertheless they are
added to the end of the dynlocal linked list (eek, yes) to be fixed
"later". This is done so the symbols are emitted in the symtab.
- Consequently, when the `sh_info' field of the .dynsym section is
calculated in `bfd_elf_final_link' to be `local_dynsymcount + 1', it
may have the wrong value, since the real first global symbol is the
first STT_REGISTER symbol.
- However, this temporary inconsistency is fixed in the
`elf64_sparc_output_arch_syms' backend hook: the sh_index is
adjusted to its rightful value. So all is well and good.

Fix ARM fail of gap test
ld-elf/gap test was failing due to the ARM backend attempting to output
arch symbols when ld -s (strip all symbols) is in force. This patch
stops that happening and tidies the code a little.
made the `elf_backend_output_arch_syms' backend hook to not be called
when all symbols are to be stripped. This resulted in an incorrect
sh_index for .dynsym when a link is performed with -s (strip_all), in
64-bit sparc ELF objects.
This patch moves the sh_index adjusting code from the target
`output_arch_syms' to `finish_dynamic_sections'. It also removes the
strip_all check from `elf64_sparc_output_arch_syms', as the function
is no longer called in that case.
Tested in sparc64-linux-gnu and sparc-linux-gnu.
No regressions observed.

* elf64-sparc.c (elf64_sparc_output_arch_syms): Do not correct the
impact of STT_REGISTER symbols in the dynsym sh_index here...
* elfxx-sparc.c (_bfd_sparc_elf_finish_dynamic_sections): ... but
do it here.
