valgrind: Skip vgpreload_memcheck shared object from stripping
This is a special library for memcheck tool, where it needs to have the symbols intact for the stack traces to work on target, current option is to install valgrind-dbg ( 151 MB uncompressed ) is quite big for some systems which may not have space to install it all. Leaving it unstripped adds about 200KB to image which is much better, this alone gets memcheck working, as an aside we might need same solution for other tools e.g. helgrind etc. when needed, they also have leading libraries installed Signed-off-by: Khem Raj <> Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <>
