Right, I wasn't clear. I was referring to the fact that we parse two
different DIEs for A::bad6, the one which is a member and the other
which is a function - they're both DW_TAG_subprogram DIEs, but one of
them is in the class and the other isn't. It doesn't have to be that
way, but always is, for GCC.
We can and probably should follow the specification to verify that we
are in a class.
