RE: [PING] [PATCH v2] Bug 17394: we cannot put a break-point at a global function for ASM file


Hello global maintainers,

The deadline to receive the review for patch from a maintainer expired. Keith Seitz required a review from a maintainer for this patch on 30 September 2014.

Please help us to find a maintainer that can do the review for this patch.
  
Thank you in advance for your support.

Mihai

Dear all,

I would like to remind you that the patch attached is still pending for the final approval.
When we last exchanged messages there seemed to be no problem; has anything happened since ?
I'm looking forward to your reply.

Thank you,
Mihai

> Scenario: We can mix objects that were compiled/assembled by different vendors and the third party assembler provides debug information and it doesn't have this limitation. An application may contain more than one file that have the same name. We cannot put a breakpoint at a function in all objects that have the same name if an object that comes from ASM file has debug info and is linked before the objects assembled with the GNU-GAS. In the new test case I have tried to emulate the third party assembler behavior in the break-asm-file1.s.

That makes sense to me. FWIW, here is a combined patch which I think a maintainer should give a final look over.

Thank you for the patch!
Keith
