dwz optimizes DWARF debugging information contained in ELF shared
libraries and executables for size, by replacing DWARF information
representation with equivalent smaller representation where possible,
and by reducing the amount of duplication using techniques from the
DWARF standard appendix E - creating DW_TAG_partial_unit compilation
units (CUs) for duplicated information and using DW_TAG_imported_unit
to import it into each CU that needs it.
The tool handles DWARF 32-bit format debugging sections of versions
2, 3 and 4 and GNU extensions on top of those, though using DWARF 4
or worst case DWARF 3 is strongly recommended.
When not using the -m option (multifile mode), GDB CVS snapshot (soon to be
7.5) is sufficient, when using -m option, GDB from a git branch
is needed.

- Add dwz-0.12-ignore-nobits.patch to ignore SHT_NOBITS sections
that are placed out-of-order by objcopy when extracting debuginfo
and place them at sh_offset zero.

- Update to new upstream version 0.12
* Fix up alignment of non-allocated sections and section header table
after sections which have changed size.
2014-12-10 - jengelh@inai.de
- Update to new upstream version 0.11
* fix iterative hashing on big-endian targets
* optimize DW_FORM_data[48] DW_AT_high_pc that GCC 4.8 produces
* fix up handling of DIE equality if more than one DIE in the same
CU compare equal
* check DW_FORM_ref_addr properly during fi_multifile phase
* when creating DW_AT_stmt_list, use DW_FORM_sec_offset for dwarf4
and DW_FORM_data4 for dwarf[23] rather than vice versa
* handle .gdb_index version 7 and 8
