I comitted the revert now (my original testing got struct on ICE in
auto-inc-dec pass that is unrelated).  I probably won't have time to analye
what went wrong until Wednesday. The patch did not really play with
ELF visibilities it was again related to bringing symbols local.
I tried a case disabling the new conditional on clearning user section
but that did not help. The patch basically collected few cleanups
and fixes of corner case.  Last change is fix in the inline heuristics
to not try to enale DECL_ONE_ONLY section sharing on targets not supporting
it.  Obviously it should not lead to wrong code, since any inlining decision
change should not, but I am testing it independnely now.
