Hidden matters with static PIE: extern symbol access in position
independent code usually involves GOT indirections which needs
RELATIVE relocs in a static linked PIE. Using So hidden avoids
indirections and RELATIVE relocs on targets that can access symbols

The check should use IS_IN_LIB instead of IS_IN(libc) since all
static libraries can use hidden visibility to avoid indirections,
however the test system links objects from libcrypt.a into dynamic
linked test binaries so hidden does not work there.  I think mixing
static and shared libc components in the same binary should not be
supported usage, but to be safe only use hidden in libc.a.

From -static-pie linked 'int main(){}' this shaves off 73 relative
relocs on aarch64 and reduces code size too.
