[RFA] Fix inconsistency in blockvector addrmap vs non-addrmap handling


I was seeing the assert in dw2_find_pc_sect_psymtab trigger
and traced it to the fact that when pending_addrmap_interesting gets
set is used instead of blockvector.block.
The difference is that blockvector.block contains entries for the global
and static blocks whereas pending_addrmap doesn't.

This patch fixes this by making them consistent.
I suspect more work is necessary (e.g. can symtabs "overlap" even though
the individual pieces do not?).
But I first want to fix the regression introduced by the change
to dw2_find_pc_sect_psymtab: There is more code in a symtab than is
documented by function and lexical block pc ranges (e.g. C++ method thunks).

Regression tested on amd64-linux, and by verifying the assert no longer
triggers in the testcase I was using.

Ok to commit?

Note that this obviates the need for the patch in:

Also note that this accompanies this patch:
