As it turns out, the LTO linker does not need to visibility pragma to
prevent it from emitting GOT based relocations. This makes sense,
considering that the LTO linker can see that no symbol references are
ever satisfied across dynamic object boundaries. That means I could
work around this in the following way:


and I can drop this patch.
