being able to overload a specific function has never been supported nor should
it have been, it just worked on some, maybe all ELF based systems with PIC
shared libs and gcc

try intels cc it can IIRC inline global functions -> no more ovrrideability

also -Bsymbolic makes the code smaller, faster and more secure each of them
alone is reason enough to use it
so even if the code gets fixed differently we should keep -Bsymbolic

actually i consider it a bug in the linker that -Bsymbolic isnt default
