Re: Problem with BFD

I'm sorry, I made a mistake while evaluating this  BFD_ASSERT
(!unit->cached)  :-)

Obviously, it asserts if unit->cached already TRUE.

After some debugging I see that comp_unit_maybe_decode_line_info has
returned TRUE.
This is because unit->error is 0 and unit->line_table is non-zero.
On my mind, something wrong with this function.
If you take a look at the unit, its line_table is non-NULL but
variable_table and function_table are NULL.
Shouldn't comp_unit_maybe_decode_line_info set error if any of
variable_table and function_table are NULL?
