[commit]: Display .debug_line section contents with readelf -w

Hi Guys,

  I am applying the patch below to fix invoking readelf with just the
  "-w" command line option.  The problem at the moment is that
  although it does display all the other debug sections it ignores the
  .debug_line section.  This was because the do_debug_lines variable
  was not being set to any particular value.  So I have changed the
  behaviour so that "readelf -w" will include a raw dump of the
  .debug_line section.

  Tested on a wide variety of toolchains with no regressions.

	* dwarf.c (display_debug_lines): If do_debug_lines has not been
	set then default to displaying raw .debug_line section contents.
