I also want to point out that time is running out for those 3 DWARF2
bugs for the AVR for GCC 4.0. I just saw an announcement on the GCC list
where Mark Mitchell (the Release Manager) wrote:
"In terms of schedule, I plan to create the first prerelease this
weekend, in preparation for a final release on or about the 15th, as
planned. After I make the prerelase, the branch will be slushy, and all
non-documentation commits will require my approval."
It is a problem with avr-gcc's output of DWARF debug information. See
the bug report I referred to:
as you are aware of, naming the sections is not the real problem.
Also relocated .text sections will cause problems. More serious is the
16-bit address limitation.
What is the real problem here?
- the DWARF/2 specs?
- The gcc DWARF output?
So if any fixes don't make it into the 4.0 FSF tree, the toolchain
distributors will need the patches.
