Ah, so the problem is the missing -flto in the second compilation

somehow. Is there are PR open for this?
Compiler can not report it because it does not see the other object files.
It is really up to user to understand -fwhole-program and mark externally visible
symbols. Your testcase is quite ugly in a way that it leads to miscopmilation
rather than linktime error, but there is not much we can do about it I guess.
Perhaps we can somehow poison the object names that are brought local with -fwhole-program
so linking explode, but I am not sure there is way to do so.
Define a common object of unreasonable size and -fgc-sections?
