Hi Hilko,

Thanks for this work. It sounds good but I prefer a simplest way to
make the maintaining easier. From 'man dpkg-gensymbols':

"When  generating  those  files,  it  uses  as  input  some symbols
provided by the maintainer."

So, I prefer keep the symbols that are common for all architectures,
doing the specific symbols be generated by build system. In other
words, my intent is remove the conflicting symbols. From now, I will
use c++filt to demangle the C++ symbols. It was a good lesson for me.

Thanks a lot for your help.
