Yes, this looks fine --- thanks!

If the change was written by Daniel, and you're merging it on his
behalf, I think our practice is to use a ChangeLog entry like this:

2006-06-12  Daniel Jacobowitz  <>

	* dwarf2read.c (read_unspecified_type): New function.
	(read_type_die): Handle DW_TAG_unspecified_type.
        (Committed by Julian Brown.)
