A while back we were given a nios2-elf executable that caused GDB to 
segfault while reading its debug information.  The binary turned out to 
have invalid DWARF-2 information in the .debug_line section: although 
the file name table had references to entries in the directory table, 
the directory table itself was empty.  The executable was produced by 
some very old version of GCC (4.1.2?), and we verified that more current 
toolchain versions don't produce such bad debug information any more. 
But, since it's generally a bad thing for GDB to segfault, here is a 
patch that makes the DWARF-2 reader more robust by making sure the 
directory table is non-NULL before trying to access entries in it.

OK to commit?

It looks reasonable to me.

I might also have added a complaint somewhere, to help diagnoze
mysterious behavior caused by the lack of the include_dirs table.
But I'm not sure where we would have put that complaint without
causing it to be triggered for each and every reference. It's not
very important, as the situation is unlikely.

OK to push.
