ELFUTILS 0.181 - http://elfutils.org/

A new release of elfutils is available at:
or https://sourceware.org/elfutils/ftp/0.181/

* NEWS *

libelf: elf_update now compensates (fixes up) a bad sh_addralign for
        SHF_COMPRESSED sections.

libdebuginfod: configure now takes --enable-libdebuginfod=dummy or
               --disable-libdebuginfod for bootstrapping.
               DEBUGINFOD_URLS now accepts "scheme-free" urls
               (guessing at what the user meant, either http:// or file://)

readelf, elflint: Handle aarch64 bti, pac bits in dynamic table and gnu
                  property notes.

libdw, readelf: Recognize DW_CFA_AARCH64_negate_ra_state. Allows unwinding
                on arm64 for code that is compiled for PAC (Pointer
                Authentication Code) as long as it isn't enabled.
