RFC: Displaying multibyte symbol names in readelf
Fri May 25 08:28:00 GMT 2012
Indeed a good point. It turns out that writing a test case is a lot
harder than writing the code to display the multibyte characters. Not
least because currently we have no way of generating multibyte symbol
names. (I developed the patch using a binary given to me under NDA by a
customer, so I cannot use that binary in the testsuite). I am currently
working on a way to generate multibyte symbol names and then using this
to create a testcase.

This much I did test, and the are no regressions from the patch.
