The -Wl,<foo> syntax is gcc specific syntax which tells it to pass <foo>
as an argument to the linker but here it being passed to the linker

The symbolic-functions thing doesn't come from the Xen source so it must
come from either the Ubuntu packaging/patches or some environmental
factor (i.e. LDFLAGS set in the environment).
