[PATCH v2 10/19] write_pieced_value: Transfer least significant bits into bit-field


On big-endian targets, when targeting a bit-field, write_pieced_value
currently transfers the source value's *most* significant bits to the
target value, instead of its least significant bits.  This is fixed.

In particular the fix adjusts the initial value of 'offset', which can now
potentially be nonzero.  Thus the variable 'type_len' is renamed to
'max_offset', to avoid confusion.  And for consistency, the affected logic
that was mirrored in read_pieced_value is changed there in the same way.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* dwarf2loc.c (write_pieced_value): When writing to a bit-field,
	transfer the source value's least significant bits, instead of its
	lowest-addressed ones.  Rename type_len to max_offset.
	(read_pieced_value): Mirror above changes to write_pieced_value as
	applicable.
