Description Tom de Vries 2021-02-26 12:33:56 UTC
I run the gdb testsuite with target boards cc-with-dwz and cc-with-dwz-m to test dwz against gdb.

I have a grepping script that filters out known irrelevant dwz messages.

However, consider this output:
gdb compile failed, dwz: /home/vries/gdb_versions/devel/build/gdb/testsuite/outputs/gdb.dwarf2/loclists-multiple-cus/loclists-multiple-cus-dw32: Unknown DWARF DW_FORM_loclistx
dwz: /home/vries/gdb_versions/devel/build/gdb/testsuite/outputs/gdb.dwarf2/loclists-multiple-cus/loclists-multiple-cus-dw32: Couldn't read abbrev at offset 0x64

AFAICT, these are two error message caused by the same problem.

The "Unknown DWARF DW_FORM_loclistx" is specific enough to filter out.

But the "Couldn't read abbrev at offset 0x64" isn't.

It would be better if there was only one, specific error message for this.
