That is particularly with -fdebug-types-section.

OK, therefore I dropped that separate struct dwarf2_lineinfo
and reused struct line_header instead.

Implemented (omitting some story why I did not include it before).

I hope this patch should no longer break -fdebug-types-section.
If it additionally enables some future optimization for -fdebug-types-section
the better.

I have added there now:
+  /* OFFSET is for struct dwz_file associated with dwarf2_per_objfile.  */

If one removes it regressions really happen.  What happens is that this
line_header_hash (former lineinfo_hash) is in struct dwarf2_per_objfile which
is common for both objfile and its objfile.dwz (that one is normally in
/usr/lib/debug/.dwz/ - common for multiple objfiles).  And there are two
different DIEs at offset 0xb - one in objfile and one in objfile.dwz - which
would match single line_header if offset_in_dwz was not there.

Also existing dwarf2read.c code usually transfers "dwz flag" together with DIE
offset, such as:
	dwarf2_find_containing_comp_unit (sect_offset offset,
					  unsigned int offset_in_dwz,
					  struct objfile *objfile)
This reminds me - why doesn't similar ambiguity happen also for dwp_file?
I am unfortunately not much aware of the dwp implementation details.

I have changed it but this was just blind copy from existing line 21818.

I have not changed it but this was just blind copy from existing line 21818.

Tuning some constants really makes no sense when GDB has missing + insanely
complicated data structures and in consequence GDB is using inappropriate data
structures with bad algorithmic complexity.  One needs to switch GDB to C++
and its STL before one can start talking about data structures performance.


No regressions on {x86_64,x86_64-m32,i686}-fedora20-linux-gnu in DWZ mode and
in -fdebug-types-section mode.

	Fix 100x slowdown regression on DWZ files.
	* dwarf2read.c (struct dwarf2_per_objfile): Add line_header_hash.
	(struct line_header): Add offset and offset_in_dwz.
	(dwarf_decode_lines): Add parameter decode_mapping to the declaration.
	(free_line_header_voidp): New declaration.
	(line_header_hash, line_header_eq): New functions.
	(dwarf2_build_include_psymtabs): Update dwarf_decode_lines caller.
	(handle_DW_AT_stmt_list): Use dwarf2_per_objfile->line_header_hash.
	(free_line_header_voidp): New function.
	(dwarf_decode_line_header): Initialize offset and offset_in_dwz.
	(dwarf_decode_lines): New parameter decode_mapping, use it.
