Comment 1 H.J. Lu 2010-07-15 00:45:31 UTC
On Linux/x86-64, there are 2 gas test failures:

FAIL: DWARF2 debugging information 2
FAIL: 64bit DWARF2 debugging information 2

due to compressed debug sections with relocations.

I think we should always uncompress on read unless told not to.
It should help everyone, including ld and gdb.

We can implement linker compression later.
