DSFs have image file format, which is an unstructured (binary) file - 
disk blocks aka fixed size records of 512 bytes. They have an image 
header, which points to the debug information. STB files have object 
file format, which is an record structured (binary) file.

Reading with alpha_vms_object_p seems OK for the STB files but looks 
strange for the DSFs.
