Hi,

in Fedora 24 it still worked, in Fedora 25 it does not - *-debuginfo.rpm
no longer have the .gdb_index accelerating section now.

It happens because:
objcopy: unable to copy file 'foo.debug'; reason: Permission denied

*.debug files in Fedora were always 444 but the time gdb-add-index is run is
still before the *.debug split and in Fedora 24 the files were -rwxr-xr-x
that time while in Fedora 25 they are apparently no longer w.

OK for check-in?

The problem was in Fedora /usr/lib/rpm/find-debuginfo.sh script regression.

This GDB contrib/ patch is not required to make Fedora working.

Although I find it as a good improvement anyway so keeping it here submitted.

Not sure I agree; looks like a hack to me.  :-/
Since it's not needed, it seems better to me to keep the code simpler.

Thanks,
