	function.  Marks mapping symbols in object files as precious, so
	that strip will not remove them.

/* Make sure that mapping symbols in object files are not removed via the
"strip --strip-unneeded" tool. These symbols are needed in order to
correctly generate interworking veneers, and for byte swapping code
regions. Once an object file has been linked, it is safe to remove the
symbols as they will no longer be needed. */
