Yes. But the $d and $a are already preserved even in the .strtab section
when only the list is preserved and the others ($t and $t.x) are not
present even in the full table. So there doesn't seem to be problem with
the symbols that must be kept.

The problem is that the linker registers index in the strtab that are
wrong since they are the indexes the corresponding string would be if the string
would not have been discarded.
