One, big hole, IMHO, with the DWARF2 mechanism is the complete inability to
debug assembly code.  There is no mechanism to write an assembly module and
generate any symbolic information.

Please correct me if I am wrong!

At least one could tell COFF what file the assembly was in and you could set
breakpoints, etc. in that file.

It's questionable whether the elfcoff patch will continue. Eventually we
would like for it to go away. AVR Studio, for GCC, is moving towards
using ELF and DWARF2. AVR GDB apparently can use DWARF2. I know of one
commercial simulator that has just written in support for DWARF2, and
another commercial simulator that is planning for DWARF2 support. Yet,
it's somewhat troubling that there are these bug reports for DWARF2
support in AVR GCC.

Perhaps Atmel can comment on whether they think it would be prudent to
continue the ELFCOFF convertor in the toolset until these problems can
get worked out?
