I've committed the following.

gdb/ChangeLog:
2007-12-17  Jim Blandy  <jimb@codesourcery.com>

	* dwarf2read.c (dwarf2_add_field): Correctly scale all byte
	offsets obtained from DW_AT_data_member_location before recording
	them in FIELD_BITPOS (*fp).

	* dwarf2read.c (attr_form_is_section_offset): Doc fixes.
