aha, I missed that, sorry.
But this comes back to my comment on the other patch.
In the case of readelf.c this makes sense, since it uses libdwfl
to access the elf data it can "transparently" read the compressed
data. But other callers might not be able to process compressed
sections. So I think we should carefully audit all callers to
make sure that if debugscn_p () returns true for a compressed
section then they are actually able to process the data.
