Let me phrase it differently. What is this patch (and the matching backend PR) supposed to achieve? There are effectively two ways to get rid of PLT entries:
(1) Bind references locally. This is effectively what -Bsymbolic does and what is breaking the ELF interposition rules.
(2) Do an indirect call via the GOT. Requires knowing what  an external symbol is, making it non-attractive for anything but LTO, since it will create performance issues for all non-local accesses (i.e. anything private).
