I'm seeing DWARF1 debug info in a final executable where the DW_high_pc
is lower than the DW_low_pc, and it looks like the DW_low_pc isn't properly
resolved; e.g. it has a value like 0000008 or 00000010.

Yup, I checked a few of the symbols and they do seem to be in .gnu.linkonce
sections...can any meaningful inferences be made from this?
