The problem is that at least on f11, libbfd.so is a... linker script,
not an ELF shared library as the name seemed to imply.

But if I cheat and do a dlopen on the full name, that includes the
version, it works. Argh, I don't know why this has to be so contorted,
does anybody here understands this?

Anyway, the reworked patch below works and additionally doesn't dlopens
at each DSO, but just once and only if it finds a symbol starting with
an underscore, an heuristic to avoid loading bfd if we don't need it.

Looking at each DW_AT_language attribute in the DW_TAG_compile_unit
tags, trying to figure out if there is a C++ object in the mix seems too
much, we would have to traverse all of the compile units, touching most
of the debuginfo file :-\
