Is this specific to an architecture or common to all?
What does the suffix look like that is being stripped?
Are the symbols in the ELF symbols table or just in the DWARF data?

I am not objecting to the change but I think this commit messages would be a
better long term help if it carried some more detail. The questions I have
provided are an example of might be useful to add.
