elfutils 0.171 released

ELFUTILS 0.171 -

A new release of elfutils is available at:

* NEWS *

DWARF5 and split dwarf, including GNU DebugFission, are supported now.
Data can be read from the new DWARF sections .debug_addr, .debug_line_str,
.debug_loclists, .debug_str_offsets and .debug_rnglists.  Plus the new
DWARF5 and GNU DebugFission encodings of the existing .debug sections.
Also in split DWARF .dwo (DWARF object) files.  This support is mostly
handled by existing functions (dwarf_getlocation*, dwarf_getsrclines,
dwarf_ranges, dwarf_form*, etc.) now returning the data from the new
sections and data formats.  But some new functions have been added
to more easily get information about skeleton and split compile units
(dwarf_get_units and dwarf_cu_info), handle new attribute data
(dwarf_getabbrevattr_data) and to keep references to Dwarf_Dies
that might come from different sections or files (dwarf_die_addr_die).

Not yet supported are .dwp (Dwarf Package) and .sup (Dwarf Supplementary)
files, the .debug_names index, the .debug_cu_index and .debug_tu_index
sections. Only a single .debug_info (and .debug_types) section are
currently handled.

readelf: Handle all new DWARF5 sections.
         --debug-dump=info+ will show split unit DIEs when found.
         --dwarf-skeleton can be used when inspecting a .dwo file.
	 Recognizes GNU locviews with --debug-dump=loc.

libdw: New functions dwarf_die_addr_die, dwarf_get_units,
       dwarf_getabbrevattr_data and dwarf_cu_info.
       libdw will now try to resolve the alt file on first use of
       an alt attribute FORM when not set yet with dwarf_set_alt.
       dwarf_aggregate_size() now works with multi-dimensional arrays.

libdwfl: Use process_vm_readv when available instead of ptrace.

backends: Add a RISC-V backend.

There were various improvements to build on Windows.
The sha1 and md5 implementations have been removed, they weren't used.
