That is rather explicit, isn't it? For gold to match this behavior, I
think all we need to do is remove the test for sym->in_reg() in the
following code in Symbol_table::set_dynsym_indexes:

 // If the symbol is defined in a dynamic object and is
 // referenced strongly in a regular object, then mark the
 // dynamic object as needed.  This is used to implement
 // --as-needed.
 if (sym->is_from_dynobj()
     && sym->in_reg()
     && !sym->is_undef_binding_weak())

Ian, what do you think?
