I'm scratching my head how that's supposed to work.  There's no
architecture specific data, just an architecture specific function
which has to be called for each function in the object file.  Are
you suggesting that the architecture (SH for now) stores a function
pointer in per-arch module data created by _initialize_dwarf2_read?
Then read_subroutine_type() would have to retrieve the function pointer
from the per-arch module data to be able to call it for the function
currently evaluated.  That sounds like overkill.  Or I missed something
essential.  I'd be happy about some more information.


Thanks,
Corinna
