That is the "partial symtab" (psymtab) code.

Recent snapshots of gdb, and the current CVS version of gdb, operate with
the new multi-vendor C++ ABI:
If you could provide a URL or an ISO reference number for that "ISO/ANSI
ABI standard", I could check if it's the same as the "new ABI" standard
that we're working on supporting.
