I don't know what to do about pr2342.  I'm inclined to revert my
2006-02-16 bfd/elflink.c change for 2.17, simply because I haven't
developed a proper fix.  In any case, zeroing out debug fields pointing
into discarded sections has its own problems.  eg, in some sections, a
zero is a list terminator so poking zeros in the middle of a list isn't
correct.  We really need to edit the debug info, and fix all the refs.

	PR 2342
	* elflink.c (_bfd_elf_default_action_discarded): Revert 2006-02-16.
