You mentioned this patch broke your builds.
For that to happen you would have had to had a symbol with a "*@" prefix.
That's not supposed to happen.
The generic parts of the compiler add "*" when it finds things like register
names. See make_decl_rtl.
The PA port adds '@' if and only if the symbol in question is a function.
So I don't see how this could possibly break your builds.
