hidden objects are not referenced correctly when using -fPIC

 Description  « Hide
a hidden object is not referenced correctly when using -fPIC compilation mode. The following code illustrates this

extern int foo0 __attribute__((__visibility__("hidden")));
extern int foo1;

int bar(void)
        return foo0 + foo1;

when compiled with "pcc -fPIC -S test.c" handles a reference to the _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_, but does not use it for foo0

        movl foo1@GOT(%eax),%edx
        movl foo0,%eax

contrast this with gcc output, which produces

        addl $_GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_, %ecx
        movl foo0@GOTOFF(%ecx), %edx
        movl foo1@GOT(%ecx), %eax

anyway, this causes errors down the line, in the linking part of libraries which are using hidden symbols.
