[AMD Official Use Only - Internal Distribution Only]

Hi Simon,

Sorry, I missed the comment. And I will try to setup the git-send-email before the next patch. Thank you.

*Handle DW_LLE_base_addressx, DW_LLE_startx_length and DW_LLE_start_length.

Tested by running the testsuite before and after the patch and there is no increase in the number of test cases that fails.
Tested with both -gdwarf-4 and -gdwarf-5 flags. Also tested -gslit-dwarf along with -gdwarf-4 as well as -gdwarf5 flags.


gdb/ChangeLog:
        *dwarf2loc.c (decode_debug_loclists_addresses): Handle
          DW_LLE_base_addressx, DW_LLE_startx_length, DW_LLE_start_length.

This is an effort to support DWARF5 in gdb.


Regards,
Nitika

Thanks.  The best is to use git-send-email, which makes git send the patch by email directly, in the right format.  It requires a bit of setup, since you need to specify your SMTP server settings, but it's really worth it.

If you can't use git-send-email for some reason, the second best option is git-format-patch.  git-format-patch will produce a complete patch, including the subject and the commit message.  So if you want to send your patch as an attachment or paste it in an email, please use git-format-patch instead of git-diff, which just produces the diff, without the commit message.

Finally, if you manually paste your patch in an email, then you need to make sure the email client doesn't change anything (like break long lines), otherwise the patch will be corrupted.

The documentation about the encoding also seems irrelevant to me, since, again, they are not even used for parsing anything.

Hmm, I don't see the comment in the new version of the patch.

Thanks.

I could push this patch on your behalf, but I am having trouble applying it, probably
because your client (I'm guessing outlook?) has messed with it.  Could you please
generate it with git-format-patch and send it as an attachment?  This way it should
arrive intact.

Hi Achra,

The commit message of the patch is empty.  The text that is above, which describes what
your patch does, should be placed in your git commit, such that it will appear in the
patch file when you use "git format-patch".

This is the text that people will see when they do "git log", so you can do "git log"
to see how it's usually formatted.

Thanks,

Simon
