You could look into the GDB source to see how it handles it.  I'd
think(I haven't looked at the code yet), that GDB picks the first(or
lowest) address that it finds.

I guess you haven't thought about what to do with inlined functions
yet(since in that case you'll have N copies of the function in the
code, one for each call, each with the same source line numbering.
