2011-12-14  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf.h, dwarf_error.c: Add a new error code 
       for DW_OP location codes.
     * dwarf_loc.c: Implement support for new DW_OP_GNU codes.
2011-12-13  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf.h: Added some GNU extensions.
     * libdwarf.h: Added dwarf_lineoff_b() as
       dwarf_lineoff() wrongly returns a signed column number.
       Added dwarf_add_lineentry_b() as preparation for creating
       DWARF3/4 output.
     * dwarf_line.h: Added new struct fields to accomodate
       DWARF3/4 isa and discriminator fields.
     * dwarf_line.c: Now deals with the VLIW line calculations
       in DWARF4.  Adds support for computing the discriminator
       and isa fields.  Adds dwarf_lineoff_b() (and dwarf_lineoff
       is now deprecated).  Adds dwarf_prologue_end_etc() which
       returns some DWARF3/4 line fields.
     * dwarf_print_lines.c: Adds handling of DWARF3/4
       line operations and fields and prints the details.
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documents the new functions in dwarf_line.c
       Version set to 2.02.
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
     * libdwarf2p.1.mm: Documents the new function
       dwaf_add_line_entry_b().
       Version set to 1.32.
     * libdwarf2p.1.pdf: Regenerated.
     * pro_incl.h:  Add parentheses so the WRITE_UNALIGNED macro
       works correctly in all circumtances.
     * pro_opaque.h: Add DEBUG_RANGES and dEBUG_TYPES to the list
       of sections we could generate.  Define struct Dwarf_P_Line_Inits_s
       to hold initialization values for line table data so we can later
       make the choices at runtime rather than compile time.
       The new struct is a field of the Dwarf_P_Debug struct.
     * pro_line.h: Added some DWARF3/4 support and preparations
       for emitting DWARF3/4.
     * pro_line.c: Define dwarf_add_line_entry_b() for DWARF3/4
       line fields, and _dwarf_init_default_line_header_vals()
       to provide a default set of values, the defaults match
       what was previously done.
       Add support for the new DWARF3/4 line table fields.
     * pro_section.c:  Add the beginnings of support for creating
       new DWARF3/4 sections and the new standard opcodes.
       Move the field-writing code to small functions making
       the line table writing smaller and easier to read.
       Added the beginnings of allowing writing DWARF3/4
       line table fields. Some if() missing {} were
       modified by adding {} to avoid future problems.
2011-12-08  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_frame.c: Corrected a typo by adding a space
       to a comment.
     * libdwarf2p.1.mm: A sentence about dwarf_lne_end_sequence() 
       was missing its introductory words. New version is 1.31.
     * libdwarf2p.1.pdf: Regenerated.
2011-11-02  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf.h: Spelling fix: specfic->specific. 
       Rearranged a few comments  about MIPS/SGI for 
       a better appearance.
2011-10-29  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Add support for the .debug_types section.
     * dwarf_arange.c,dwarf_global.c: Add commentary about 
       debug_info vs debug_types and a new argument to
       an internal function.
     * dwarf_arange.h,dwarf_global.h: Add comment that this is 
       debug_info related only.
     * dwarf_die_deliv.c: Now handles .debug_types as well as
       .debug_info, and context information for the two sections
       is kept seperate.
     * dwarf_elf_access.c: Add a check for relocations of .debug_types.
     * dwarf_error.c: Added error strings related to .debug_types.
     * dwarf_form.c: Changes for .debug_types, mainly due to removing
       'info_' from certain struct member names.
     * dwarf_init_finish.c: Notice the .debug_types section. 
       New function dwarf_get_section_max_offsets_b() returns
       the size of debug_types (added to existing arguments).
     * dwarf_opaque.h: Fields named *_info_* have the info_
       removed as they apply to debug_types as well.
       A new struct Dwarf_Debug_InfoTypes holds the data
       for either of .debug_types and .debug_info sections.
       Separating them so the sections can be accessed
       simultaneously.  Moved data items from Dwarf_Debug to
       the new struct. DIE structs now have a 'is_info' field
       so a CU and a DIE know whether they are from .debug_info
       or .debug_types.
     * dwarf_query.c: The query functions now work for
       debug_info and debug_query as appropriate.
     * dwarf_util.h: Added _dwarf_load_debug_types() and altered
       a couple internal function prototypes with an 'is_info' flag
       argument.
     * dwarf_util.c: Added _dwarf_load_debug_types(). Altered
       functions so the deal with .debug_types or .debug_info
       as appropriate.
     * libdwarf.h: Added debug_types error codes.
       Added dwarf_siblingof_b() and dwarf_offdie_b() and
       Added dwarf_next_cu_header_c() and
       dwarf_get_cu_die_offset_given_cu_header_offset_b()
       to account for .debug_types or .debug_info as required.
       Added dwarf_get_die_infotypes_flag() so client code
       can know if a DIE is debug_info or debug_types based.
       Added dwarf_get_section_max_offsets_b(), adding
       a debug_types size argument.
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documented the new functions. New version
       is 2.0 (somewhat arbitrarily changed from 1.x to 2.0)
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated

2011-10-26  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * Makefile.in, README: Added Make settings of PREINCS POSTINCS
       PRELIBS, POSTLIBS to simplify building when libdwarf or libelf
       are not in the normal locations.   Documented usable ways to
       deal with unusual situations at build time.
2011-10-09  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net> .
     * dwarf_die_deliv.c, dwarf_elf_access.c: Fix bad indentation.
2011-10-05  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net> .
     * dwarf_die_deliv.c: When relocations fail, record
       a 'harmless error' and continue the CU loading.
       No way to be sure the error is really harmless, of course.
       But it seems to often be harmless.
       For some if() tests add {} to make the clause extent clear.
     * dwarf_harmless.c: Add a comment prefix to dwarf_harmless_init().
2011-10-03  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_line.c: Introduce {} in a test to avoid future mistakes.
2011-09-23  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_arange.c: Test for a zero address-size: that indicates
       broken dwarf generation.
     * dwarf_line.c: Test for irrational line number header data and
       error off with DW_DLE_LINE_NUMBER_HEADER_ERROR if we find it.
       Add accidentally-omitted check for version 4.
     * dwarf_error.c, libdwarf.h: New error code 
       DW_DLE_LINE_NUMBER_HEADER_ERROR.
2011-09-16  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_elf_access.c: Give up relocating if the Elf symtab 
       header sh_entrysize is zero, and refine the test for 
       invalid symbol index to be a >= test.
     * dwarf_error.c: Define text message for 
       DW_DLE_SYMTAB_SECTION_ENTRYSIZE_ZERO.
     * libdwarf.h: New error code DW_DLE_SYMTAB_SECTION_ENTRYSIZE_ZERO.
2011-09-15  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_elf_access.c: Adding fields to the object
       structs dwarf uses and using them for error checks
       when processing relocations.  
     * dwarf_error.c: Adding descriptions of new error messages
       for Elf object file interpretation problems.
     * dwarf_init_finish.c: Adding 'entrysize' field about objects
       do dwarf_elf_access.c can check for object and relocation  
       data errors and avoid a coredump.  And we memset() a struct
       to ensure there are no uninitialized contents.
     * dwarf_opaque.h: Adding new dss_entrysize and
       dss_reloc_entrysize fields so elf error
       checks can be added to dwarf_elf_access.c.  These changes mean
       you must recompile all of libdwarf source, not 
       just a subset, when rebuilding (the first time one sees this change).
     * libdwarf.h: Adding entrysize element to Dwarf_Obj_Access_Section_s.
       Non-elf object formats can just set this field zero and ignore it.
       Added new elf-specific error codes for the new checks in
       dwarf_elf_access.c.
2011-09-14  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * BLDLIBDWARFTAR: Moved a local disk file. Irrelevant
       to everyone but DA.
     * dwarf_arange.c: check that the address_size and segment 
       selector size fields are sensible.
     * dwarf_die_deliv.c,dwarf_frame2.c: Give
       DW_DLE_ADDRESS_SIZE_ERROR or DW_DLE_CU_ADDRESS_SIZE_BAD 
       if the address size read from a section is obviously wrong.
       Similarly for a bad segment-selector-size give
       DW_DLE_SEGMENT_SIZE_BAD.
     * dwarf_error.c: Added text for the DW_DLE_SEGMENT_SIZE_BAD
       error.
     * dwarf_frame.c: If dwarf_set_default_address_size() is handed
       an address_size that we cannot handle, ignore the input so
       we don't wind up coredumping the library or consumer code.
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Updated list of error codes a little bit. Rev 1.99
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
2011-09-08  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_frame.c: Fixed bad indents.
2011-09-02  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Document the new function 
       dwarf_set_default_address_size(). Updated revision to 1.97.
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
     * dwarf_frame.c: Implement dwarf_set_default_address_size().
     * libdwarf.h: Declare the new function dwarf_set_default_address_size().
     * dwarf_form.c(dwarf_formref): Removed c99-ish
       declaration so C90 can compile the code. 
     * Makefile.in, configure.in: If building shared lib
       CFLAGS gets -fPIC  added in.
     * configure: Fegenerated.
     * dwarf_loc.c: New test returns DW_DLE_LOC_BAD_TERMINATION
       in case of compiler bug in location expression.
     * dwarf_error.c, libdwarf.h: Define and document the new
       error.
     * pro_opaque.h: Fixed a bad indent.

2011-06-12  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf.h: Added dwarf_producer_init_c() and its
       callback functions. Adds a user_data void* to the
       init and callback functions for user convenience.
     * libdwarf2p.1.m: Documented dwarf_producer_init_c().
       Rev 1.30.
     * libdwarf2p.1.pdf: Regenerated
     * pro_init.c: Implement dwarf_producer_init_c().
     * pro_opaque.h: Add fields for dwarf_producer_init_c().
     * pro_reloc_stream.c: Implement dwarf_producer_init_c() callback.
     * pro_reloc_symbolic.c: Implement dwarf_producer_init_c() callback.
     * pro_section.c: Implement dwarf_producer_init_c() callback.
2011-06-09  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_form.c: Code getting access to CU context and
       dbg was repeated many times. Refactored the common
       code into a file-static subprogram.
2011-06-08  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf2.1.mm,libdwarf2.1.pdf: Now discusses
       DW_AT_data_member_location in the context
       if dwarf_loclist_n(). Rev 1.96
2011-06-08  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_init_finish.c: Inserted missing include of
       dwarf_harmless.h.
2011-06-07  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_elf_access.c: Added EM_QUALCOMM_DSP6 
       machine so that relocations work on a
       Qualcomm relocatable object in the dwarf regressiontests.
     * dwarf_util.c: Fixed indent problems added in previous
       change.
2011-06-07  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_util.c(_dwarf_get_abbrev_for_code): If there is no
       section padding the code could read-from-memory 
       one past the end of the section
       which could (in very rare circumstances) coredump
       an application. In addition, earlier in the same funcion 
       we did not account for the case where we had already read to
       end of section. Both fixed.
2011-06-06  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_error.c: Fix a typo in an error string.
     * dwarf_query.c: Implement the new function 
       dwarf_get_verion_of_die().
     * libdwarf.h: Add prototype for dwarf_get_verion_of_die().
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: for dwarf_form_{s,u}data, mention
       the DW_FORM_data{4,8} class ambiguity.
       Document the new function dwarf_get_verion_of_die().
       Document version now 1.95.
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerate.
2011-06-04  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * NEWS: Mention the non-elf documentation oversight.
     * dwarf_arange.c,dwarf_elf_access.c, dwarf_frame3.c,
       dwarf_funcs.c,dwarf_global.c,dwarf_init_finish.c,
       dwarf_line.c,dwarf_loc.c,dwarf_macro.c,dwarf_print_lines.c,
       dwarf_pubtypes.c,dwarf_query.c,dwarf_ranges.c,dwarf_string.c,
       dwarf_types.c,dwarf_vars.c, dwarf_weaks.c: Everything loading
       a section now checks the result for 'empty' and returns
       DW_DLV_NO_ENTRY explicitly.  This makes it easier to
       do nothing safely when there is no data.
2011-06-04  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_line.c (_dwarf_internal_srclines): Created new local functions
       to unify some repeated code in into function calls.  One of the
       earlier inline-repetitions was coded wrong.  Added {} to ensure clarity
       on the intended scope a couple places. Added initializers to
       a couple of local variables.
2011-06-04  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Added include "dwarf_harmless.h" so
       a prototype is visible here.
     * dwarf_form.c (dwarf_convert_to_global_offset,dwarf_global_formref):                   Deleted unused local variables.
     * dwarf_frame.c (dwarf_initialize_fde_table): Uses local instead
       of ignoring it (avoids compiler warning).
     * dwarf_frame2.c (_dwarf_get_fde_list_internal): Delete unused
       local variable.
     * dwarf_line.c (dwarf_srcfiles): Call uses variable expected
       signedness now, avoiding compiler warning.
     * dwarf_print_lines.c: Printf was missing %, gcc -Wall pointed
       out the mistake.
2011-04-23  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * pro_error.c (_dwarf_p_error): The code attempting to deal with
       an unexpected error code was doing an inappropriate cast and
       an inappropriate (possibly out-of-bounds) reference to an array
       of strings.  Removed the cast and removed the questionable 
       array reference.
     * dwarf_frame.c: A couple lines were indented badly. Fixed the indentation.
     * pro_line.h: Now __x86_64 also gets MIN_INST_LENGTH 1
2011-03-29  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * everything:   Redid all indentations for
       consistency.  Updated copyrights.  Interfaces
       did not change, existing clients should not
       encounter difficulty.
2011-03-13  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf.h, dwarf_error.c: Added 
       DW_DLE_DEBUG_FRAME_POSSIBLE_ADDRESS_BOTCH.
2011-01-20  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf.h: Added some Apple attribute extensions.
2011-01-13  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * dwarf_print_lines.c: Handles DW_FORM_exprloc now. With -vvv
       it now prints the dwarf version of the line table header.
     * dwarf_line.c:  Handles DW_FORM_exprloc now.
2011-01-13  DavidAnderson <davea42@earthlink.net>
     * libdwarf.h: Added new function dwarf_get_die_address_size().
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documented new function dwarf_get_die_address_size().
       Rev 1.91, 12 January 2011
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
     * dwarf_form.c: Corrected handling of DW_FORM_exprloc.
     * dwarf_query.c: Implemented dwarf_get_die_address_size().
       Corected handling of DW_FORM_exprloc.
     * dwarf_util.c: Added handling of DW_FORM_exprloc and
       DW_FORM_flag_present.
