[patch] Fix "Cannot find DIE" error with -gdwarf-4

This patch fixes a problem in read_import_statement, where we get a
"Cannot find DIE" error when trying to process a DW_AT_import
attribute that refers to a DIE in a different CU. When finding the
referenced DIE, the current code clobbers the CU parameter, but later
calls determine_prefix(die, cu), assuming that CU is still the CU that
contains DIE.

I found this problem using -gdwarf-4 and DW_FORM_sig8, but I don't
think this problem was introduced with the support for type units. The
same problem could have occurred given a compiler that splits debug
info into separate compilation units by include file, using
DW_FORM_ref_addr to refer to a DIE in a different CU.

OK for trunk?


        * dwarf2read.c (read_import_statement): Don't clobber original cu.
