Thanks, that helps.

How did this work before, though?  Due to __symbol_set_attribute
specifying weak linkage for the static case, I can see why we didn't get
undefined symbol errors when linking for the static case, but what about
the dynamic case?  (And that'd mean the whole loop just was a no-op
before, right?)

Did you find this while working on a specific problem?

Also, what about data_set_element which is only used in hurd/dtable.c for
_hurd_fork_locks, which is manually run through twice in
sysdeps/mach/hurd/fork.c, but which I can't find start and stop markers
being defined for?

And, might something like that in fact be responsible for the issue I had
already seen months ago, but have just earlier today finally posted as

Lastly, _hurd_fork_setup_hook is only defined but never used, it seems.
