PATCH: PR 233: Check non-debug local references to discarded sections

It works for me.  I tested this on native i686-pc-linux-gnu by running
the gdb 6.1.1 test suite with gcc 2.95.3, both dwarf-2 and stabs+.  The
results have no regressions and no improvements compared to the last
good version, 2004-06-19.
