Re: [PATCH] Allow passing a block to lookup_global_symbol_from_objfile


Hi Christian,

Code-wise, this LGTM, but I think it would need a bit of justification.  On its own
it doesn't change the behavior of GDB and does not appear to be a cleanup, so why is
this change useful?  I suppose it will be necessary for a further patch.  If so,
it's common to post it as a preparatory patch, in the same series as that other patch.
Then in the commit message you can say that "a further patch will need to call
lookup_global_symbol_from_objfile with STATIC_BLOCK", for example, that this
preparatory patch is just to isolate that change, and that on its own does not bring
any intended functional changes.

The last line should also be

 	* symtab.h (lookup_global_symbol_from_objfile): Add a scope parameter.

or

 	* symtab.c (lookup_global_symbol_from_objfile): Likewise.

On top of saying which values it can take, it would be useful to say
(very brefly) how it affects the behavior of the function.
