It could be related to:

Before this bug fix, all common symbols don't bind locally,
which is one of PR 32219 bugs.  After this fix, common
symbols bind locally.  It may cause problems on targets with
small data sections and common symbols aren't in small
data section:

1. Since common symbols bind locally, backend may assume
they are in small data section and lead to link-time failure.
2. Backend assume common symbols are never in small
data section.  But a definition in small data section may
override a common symbol, which still binds lcoally, and
turn a reference to common symbol to reference to small
data section.  This also may lead to link-time failure.

Those targets can't assume common symbols are in
small data section since it may change at link-time.

The most conservative solution is to make common
symbol doesn't bind locally for targets which defines
