Should we bring readelf up to par with eu-readelf?


I wanted to check whether eu-readelf from elfutils is affected by
binutils/19147 (it's not). In the process, I discovered that
eu-readelf decodes a lot more notes than readelf.

Current trunk readelf produces:

build/binutils/readelf -n /tmp/core.136505

Displaying notes found at file offset 0x00000200 with length 0x000009b8:

It seems to me that if readelf -n decodes any notes at all (which it
does for at least NT_FILE, NT_GNU_ABI_TAG, NT_GNU_BUILD_ID and
NT_GNU_GOLD_VERSION), then it should decode the others as well.
