Re: [PATCH v2 4/5] Allow display of negative offsets in print_address_symbolic()


I somehow missed pushing this commit when I pushed the rest of the
series.  It was strange though - that second hunk of the patch was in,
but the first was not.  Moreover, I didn't see an actual commit in master.

Regardless, it should be in now.

Thanks to Tom de Vries for his help in finding this problem.
