Yes, I but first one needs to know that given symbol needs to be
disambiguated for Gdb, as Gdb itself doesn't give any indication about that.

I guess this Gdb misfeature is due to (libbfd?) symbol lookup performance

(I do same in Hatari debugger's symbol lookup, it just returns the first
match.  However, when debugger loads the symbols, it warns about duplicate
names & addresses, just for this reason.)
