The way I understand what the GNU extension really is, is that gas automatically
renames the original function to .weak.##nameoffunction##. and creates a weak
extern ##nameoffunction## refering to .weak.##nameoffunction## which makes
##nameoffunction## a normal pecoff weak external

The requirement that sym2 is always linked is met in my testcase because the
weak extern/symbol definition is in the same object file as sym2. (otherwise
link.exe would probably not link my object files...)

So as far as I can understand that problem all of this should theoretically also
