Currently the default for stripping when building Lede/OpenWRT is

This has the following impacts:

Linking with GCC against libraries on the OpenWRT device is impossible.

Python packages like pyusb that dynamically link against C libraries
cannot be used.

Debugging with gdb is not possible.

Cf. the comments in

The size difference between libraries stripped with SSTRIP and STRIP is
very small:

STRIP: 47720 bytes
SSTRIP: 46412 bytes

In the example above the size increase is less then 3 %.

I suggest to change the default to CONFIG_USE_STRIP=y.
