2014-12-31:  David Anderson
     * dwarf_error.c: Add DW_DLE_DW_DLE_ATTR_OUTSIDE_SECTION.
     * libdwarf.h.in: Add DW_DLE_DW_DLE_ATTR_OUTSIDE_SECTION.
     * dwarf_form.c(dwarf_formexprloc): Call the new function
       _dwarf_reference_outside_section() as a check
       for an exprloc with data that is outside the section it
       belongs in.  Ie, a bug somewhere. Return error
       DW_DLE_DW_DLE_ATTR_OUTSIDE_SECTION if applicable.
     * dwarf_frame2.c(read_encoded_ptr): Pass error down so we set
       a complete Dwarf_Error record at the point of error.
       Just three functions that could use this were changed.
     * dwarf_leb.c(_dwarf_decode_u_leb128): Presented with bogus
       leb values we stop scanning the leb number before
       overrunning our value-output buffer (and dumping core).
       The change is reasonably adequate but will not catch
       all cases.
     * dwarf_query.c(dwarf_attrlist): Call _dwarf_reference_outside_section
       to check the pointer is valid.
     * dwarf_util.c,dwarf_util.h: Implement _dwarf_reference_outside_section().
2014-12-28:  David Anderson
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Added global _dwarf_failsafe_error
       to enable better error reporting when malloc arena
       has no space left. On dwarf_dealloc() avoids attempting
       a free() of the static struct.
     * dwarf_error.c,libdwarf.h.in: New error code
       DW_DLE_FAILSAFE_ERRVAL for the malloc-arena-exhausted
       case. Now use that static instead of aborting.
     * dwarf_error.h: New field and library-private extern declaration
       for the malloc-arena-exhausted case.
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documented the handling of Dwarf_Error
       when malloc space exhausted.

        aC99 feature.
     * dwarf_util.c(dwarf_print): Moved a declaration to avoid using
        aC99 feature.
2014-08-11  David Anderson, avoiding some compiler warnings.
     *dwarf_xu_index.c,dwarf_macro.c: Failed to cast the pointer
      returned by _dwarf_get_macro (one place in each file).
2014-08-04  David Anderson, avoiding some compiler warnings.
     * dwarf_alloc.c, dwarf_alloc.h: Change some uses of Dwarf_Ptr to be char *
       so we avoid adding (etc) to Dwarf_Ptr.
     * dwarf_gdbindex.c: Cast _dwarf_get_alloc() return properly.
     * dwarf_loc.c: Cast Dwarf_Ptr to char * in a couple places.
     * dwarf_query.c,dwarf_sort_line.c,pro_arange.c: Change names of local 
       variables to avoid
       compiler warning about shadowing other locals.
     * dwarf_tsearchhash.c: Changed to avoid compiler warnings
       about const casts whereever possible.
     * libdwarf.h.in: Added prototypes for DWARF5
       dwarf_get_SECT_name() and dwarf_get_MACRO_name().
     * pro_alloc.c: Add include of pro_alloc.h.
     * pro_forms.c: Made  _dwarf_add_AT_reference_internal()
       static to avoid warning. 
     * pro_types.c: Add include of pro_types.h.

     * dwarf.h: Adds DW_AT_GNU_dwo_id, DW_AT_GNU_dwo_name and other
       GNU extensions.
     * libdwarf.h.in: Producer code changes:
       The dwarf_producer_init_d() is new and has new arguments.
       The older dwarf_producer_init() and _b _c versions are removed.
       Only one producer callback declaration exists now:
       Dwarf_Callback_Func.
     * pro_init.c: Implements the new dwarf_producer_init_d()
       function and initializes fields at runtime to select
       what DWARF to emit. Messy and confusing initialization code

       of obsolete callback functions.
     * pro_section.c: Ensure only IRIX isa/abi target generates
       an exception CIE entry. Remove use of obsolete
       callbacks.
     * pro_util.h: Remove confusing and unreadable
       relocation number ifdefs that
       depended on settings at library compile-time. Most of the
       content of the file is deleted now. See 
       isa_relocs[] in pro_init.c
     * dwarf_error.c: Added error code (used by producer code).
     * libdwarf2p.1.mm: Now version 1.36. Updated dwarf_producer_init()
       documentation.
     * libdwarf2p.1.pdf: Regenerated.
2014-04-14  David Anderson
     * pro_forms.c: Modified a comment about DW_FORM_ref_addr.
       No logic change.
     * bldDWindex.sh: Deleted. This shell script was intended for 
       DWARF2 postscript post-processing and was never useful.
2014-04-12  David Anderson
     * dwarf_die_deliv.c,dwarf_query.c: Gets the version stamp passed to
       _dwarf_get_size_of_val() so DW_FORM_ref_addr handled
       correctly.
     * dwarf_form.c: Handle DW_FORM_ref_addr as the V2
       specification says (V3 and later continue to
       be handled unchanged.).
     * dwarf_util.c: Handle DW_FORM_ref_addr as the V2
       specification says (V3 and later continue to
       be handled unchanged.).
     * dwarf_addr_finder.c: Removed a mistaken handling
       of DW_FORM_ref_addr. No one should be using this
       function's features though...
     * pro_forms.c: Made a comment clearer about
       DW_FORM_ref_addr.
     * pro_section.c: Made a comment clearer, removed
       #if 0 code.
2014-04-02  David Anderson
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Examples using dwarf_offdie_b() were
       miscoded (is_info argument not provided). Now fixed.
       Now at version 2.17.
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated
2014-03-17  David Anderson
     * dwarf.v2.mm,dwarf.v2.pdf,index.v2.mm,index.v2.pdf: Removed
       these files, they are now on dwarfstd.org.
     * Makefile.in: Removed mention of the deleted files.
     * README, COPYING: Removed mention of the deleted files.
2014-02-08  David Anderson
     * libdwarf2p.1.mm: Now version 1.35.  Added a few words
       about the sect_name_index field in the callback
       from libdwarf to your code for each new Elf section
       to be generated.
     * libdwarf2p.1.pdf: Regenerated.
2014-02-02  David Anderson
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Added commentary.
     * dwarf_loc.c: Fixed two indents.
     * gennames.c: Removed trailing newlines from the printf
       output (dwarf_names_new.h is the file generated).
     * libdwarf.h.in: Removed trailing whitespace.
2014-02-01  David Anderson
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Instead of doing a long list of address compares,
       use the hash 'tree' and tfind() to determine if we malloced
       the space or simply took an address from .debug_info (
       or other in-memory section) when
       we returned a _dwarf_get_alloc() pointer to the user.
2014-01-31  David Anderson
     * configure.in: The test to generate HAVE___UINT32_T_IN_SYS_TYPES_H
       was in a strange place. Moved it up a few lines.
     * configure: Regenerated.
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Added comment hinting at how dwarf_dealloc
       can be further simplified.
2014-01-30  David Anderson
     * dwarf_loc.c: Add support for DW_FORM_exprloc
       to dwarf_loclist_n().
     * libdwarf2.1.mm: Document support for DW_FORM_exprloc.Version 2.16
     * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerate.
     * dwarf.h, dwarf_form.c, dwarf_line.c,
       dwarf_query.c, dwarf_util.c: Add limited support for DW_FORM_GNU_ref_alt
        and DW_FORM_GNU_strp_alt.
2014-01-30  David Anderson
     * dwarf_alloc.c: Refactored and added relevant commentary.
       Added a check for debug_types in dwarf_dealloc().
     * dwarf_init_finish.c: Corrected a comment and made one line
       declation-is-initialization.
     * dwarf_opaque.h: Added commentary.

       Remove trailing whitespace.
2014-01-29  David Anderson
     *  dwarf_tsearch.h, dwarf_tsearchhash.c: New files implementing
        a hashed tree with tsearch() interfaces.
     *  Makefile.in: Add dwarf_tsearchhash.c to the build.
     *  dwarf_init_finish.c: Remove references to malloc_check and _dwarf_setup_debug()
        and include of "malloc_check.h" as those are no longer needed.
     *  dwarf_line.c: Removed a superfluous _dwarf_get_alloc().  The result of the call
        was never used.
     *  dwarf_opaque.h: Removed Dwarf_Alloc_Hdr_s references and simple malloc references.
        added de_alloc_tree as base of a hash database replacing most of dwarf_alloc.c.
     *  dwarf_query.c: Removed an unused local variable.
     *  dwarf_alloc.h,dwarf_alloc.c: Removed simple malloc support and all the 
        complicated code handling allocation record-keeping in favor of 
        much simpler code calling functions
        using a tsearch-like interface.
2014-01-10  David Anderson
     *  dwarf_print_lines.c,dwarf_macro.c: Remove trailing whitespace.
     *  dwarf_ranges.c, dwarf_sort_lines.c: Remove trailing whitespace.
     *  dwarf_query.c, dwarf_pubtypes.c: Remove trailing whitespace.
     *  dwarf_original_elf_init.c,dwarf_loc.c: Remove trailing whitespace.
     *  gennames.c: Fix a printf so the generated dwarf_names.c
        does not have a trailing space.
2014-01-10  David Anderson
     *	gennames.c: Added comment clarifying why error is set
        before the call to fgets, and fixing the declaration
        order to avoid c99-ism.
     *  dwarf_frame2.c: Use /* not // for comments in C.
