Hi Daniel,

  Well the NEWS entry is wrong in two respects.  Firstly the linker does not
just generate the symbols, it PROVIDEs them.  So if they are not used elsewhere
in the executable they will not be entered into the symbol table.  Secondly the
linker only provides these symbols for orphaned sections, not for others.

  So the uploaded patch amends the NEWS entry and updates the documentation. 
Are you happy with this ?  I also considered adding a few tests to the linker
testsuite, but I am not sure if it is really worth the effort.
