This commit breaks a static build of arm-linux-user:

rm -rf build/arm-linux && mkdir build/arm-linux && (cd build/arm-linux
&& '../../configure' '--target-list=arm-linux-user' '--cc=ccache gcc'
'--disable-tools' '--static' '--enable-debug' --disable-tools) && make
-C build/arm-linux -j4

/usr/bin/ld.bfd.real: dynamic STT_GNU_IFUNC symbol `strcmp' with
pointer equality in
can not be used when making an executable; recompile with -fPIE and
relink with -pie

(this is when linking tests/qemu-iotests/socket_scm_helper)
