Hi Emil,

what unresolved symbols?

You mean the symbols that are resolved from Weston the executable?

Or maybe the symbols that libweston exports, and test modules expect to
be present without actually linking to libweston?

Yeah, all that needs to be fixed in time. Should we link all modules to
libweston? I'd assume that should fix almost all of them, but I haven't
looked yet.

Obviously we cannot land patches that break the tests.

Preferably all the binaries we build would be using no-undefined. It
was not possible before libweston because weston the executable
provided lots of them, but now it should be achievable and a very good
improvement in catching stupid bugs.
