Thanks very much for working on this.

This line is too long and should be wrapped.

This needs an introductory comment.

Just after this hunk of "struct range_bounds" is this code:

      /* Flags indicating whether the values of low and high are
         valid.  When true, the respective range value is
         undefined.  Currently used only for FORTRAN arrays.  */
      char low_undefined;
      char high_undefined;

It seems to me that it would be cleanest to make this a new value of the
enum you introduced, like "DWARF_UNDEFINED", and update a few macros to
follow.  What do you think?
