No, these are not visibility flags. What we need here is a new ebl hook to
let the backend accept more st_other bits.
/* Check whether only valid bits are set on the st_other symbol flag. */
bool ebl_check_st_other_bits (Ebl *ebl, unsigned char st_other);
I got a patch for that on the mjw/ebl_special_other branch.
Hope I hooked things up correctly.
