CL 33911 (e3efdff) added symbol linknames to the export data format, but in a suboptimal way: every symbol written into the export data now includes linkname information, even if they're not actually relevant (e.g., for local variables/labels in inline bodies).

This appears to have been done this way because it's less intrusive and didn't require a version bump for release, but we should do it correctly.

Marking for 1.10 so it's on the radar.
