That's happens because prior to 7.1, GDB used DW_AT_MIPS_linkage_name.
Nowadays, we compute a canonicalized physical name based on the debug
information. MIPS_linkage_name was too unreliable (and often "wrong" for GDB

I just built GCC 3.4.6, and it also contains the same bug: the class
declaration and function declaration DIEs contain different types ("int" vs
"const int").
