Ok for trunk.

This BTW shows a gcc bug for -gdwarf-3 - the DWARF3 standard
explicitly disallows DW_FORM_data4 and DW_FORM_data8 from constant class if
the attribute has also some *ptr class (from the DWARF3 list it seems that
only DW_AT_data_member_location is affected.  In DWARF2 that wasn't a
problem, as DWARF2 didn't allow a constant for DW_AT_data_member_location.
And in DWARF4 also DW_AT_start_scope allows a constant and *ptr, but there
it should already be using DW_FORM_sec_offset for the *ptr...
