Interesting, thanks for the reference. I also added a comment to the GCC bug
https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=48200#c43 because the current
syntax (not supporting triple @ variant) makes things a bit cumbersome.

This is partly because the interaction between linker version script and
assembler .symver isn't really documented fully. The assembler .symver should
override what is in the linker version script, but it doesn't fully. In
particular, as shown by this hack, the linker might still add a (default)
version to a symbol, even if the assembler already added a version.
