Nice, thanks. I would add the why to the commit message. "For deleted
shared library files the offsets to the symbol table were calculated
wrongly from the phdrs because the main_bias wasn't taken into account."

Looks good.

I don't think this check is needed. eu-stack needs to be attached to get
the register values and dwfl_linux_proc_find_elf makes sure the process
is attached before calling elf_from_remote_memory.
