There currently shouldn't be reverse dependencies that saw the
defines so it could pick up the symbols, but the longer it stays
like this the more likely some upload will see it and use it.

The .symbols files just looks like:
libcrypto.so.1.0.2 libssl1.0.2 #MINVER#
libssl.so.1.0.2 libssl1.0.2 #MINVER#
And the symbols already "existed", they were just not exported.
