I don't think this is correct. If you believe the testcase is (now)
wrong because it tests for an unneeded feature please just adjust the
test.

This doesn't compile with gcc:

readelf.c: In function ‘print_debug_line_section’:
readelf.c:8766:12: error: variable ‘show_op_index’ set but not used [-Werror=unused-but-set-variable]
 8766 |       bool show_op_index;
      |            ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
cc1: all warnings being treated as errors

Removing the unused show_op_index makes two testcases fail:
