Please review this patch, which fixes stripping behavior in the build.
In JDK-8150736 I reworked the general handling of debug symbols. My
intention then was to always leave debug symbols in gtest libjvm.so as
well as all other test binaries. It seems I forgot to set this for gtest
While investigating this I also discovered that setting
--with-native-debug-symbols=internal doesn't work. Most binaries are
stripped anyway. This is a bug in NativeCompilation.gmk. My fix changes
the default behavior for stripping to only happen if debug symbols are
Since the global defaults are now sane and universal, I also removed all
explicit STRIP_SYMBOLS:=true settings from specific native libraries. It
doesn't make sense to strip them if the user asked for internal debug
symbols and in all other cases they will be stripped anyway.
