2017-12-01 David Anderson 
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-12-01 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_frame2.c: dwarf_get_fde_augmentation_data() could
      return data that would result in segfaulting in a caller.
      Now the length is checked and if in error
      then DW_DLE_AUG_DATA_LENGTH_BAD is set as the error.
2017-11-08 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c(_dwarf_die_next_info_ptr): Dereferencing
      a pointer not fully checked could lead to segv in libdwarf.
    * dwarf_frame.c(_dwarf_get_return_address_reg): Dereferencing
      a pointer not fully checked could lead to segv in libdwarf.
    * dwarf_frame2.c(dwarf_create_cie_from_after_start): Dereferencing
      a pointer not fully checked could lead to segv in libdwarf.
    * dwarf_line_table_reader_common.c(_dwarf_read_line_table_header):
      DW201711-002 fix. Dereferencing
      pointers not fully checked could lead to segv in libdwarf.
    * dwarf_query.c(_dwarf_die_attr_unsigned_constant): Dereferencing
      a pointer not fully checked could lead to segv in libdwarf.
2017-11-01 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_frame.c(_dwarf_exec_frame_instr):
      An invalid frame section with 
      a DW_CFA_advance_loc1 could result in dereferencing
      an invalid pointer.  Now fixed.
2017-10-29 David Anderson 
    * dwarf.h: There was a typo in DW_FORM_strx4.
2017-10-20 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_form.c: New function: dwarf_formdata16() reads
      DW_FORM_data16.
    * dwarf_query.c,dwarf_util.c: Added support for DW_FORM_data16.
    * libdwarf.h.in: Declarations for new functions dwarf_add_AT_data16()
      and dwarf_formdata16() and new datatype Dwarf_Form_Data16 (since there
      is no numerical type we can use at present).
2017-10-15 David Anderson 
    * dwgetopt.c: Removing unused local variable 'found'.
2017-10-15 David Anderson 
    * dwgetopt.c,dwgetopt.h: Now handles simple long argument
      names cases.
2017-10-05 David Anderson 
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-10-13 David Anderson 
    * dwarf.h,libdwarf/dwarf_loc.c: Corrected spelling to
      match its use in DWARF5: DW_SECT_LOC -> DW_SECT_LOCLISTS
2017-10-05 David Anderson 
    * tag_attr.list,dwarf.h,dwarf_die_deliv.c, dwarf_opaque.h,
      dwarf_query.c,libdwarf.h.in: Changed DW_AT_ranges_base
      spelling to DW_AT_rnglists_base to match the final
      DWARF5 standard. 
2017-09-26 David Anderson 
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
    * dwarf_abbrev.c: See DW201709-001. A carefully
      constructed invalid abbrev section could result
      in a caller getting an invalid memory reference.
      So an addtional 'if' statement catches the error now.
2017-08-22 David Anderson 
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-08-21 David Anderson 
    * Makefile.in: Now 'make test', not 'make tests'.
      So consistent test name with dwarfdump. 
    * configure.cmake: Improving the handling of libelf
      (mainly for Windows) and simplifying this file.
    * dwarf_init_finish.c: Fixed indentation errors.
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-07-27 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_init_finish.c(_dwarf_setup): Removed some dead code and
      that simplified the the logic. Comments fixed
      as some in this area were not correct (stale comments).
2017-07-24 David Anderson 
    * configure.in, configure.cmake, config.h.in: Renamed
      LOCATION_OF_LIBELFHEADER to HAVE_LOCATION_OF_LIBELFHEADER
      for consistency with config.h.in generally.
    * configure: Regenerated
2017-07-24 David Anderson 
    * configure.in, configure.cmake, config.h.in:  Consistent use of
      LOCATION_OF_LIBELFHEADER so Windows can build libdwarf with
      configure or cmake.
    * configure: Regenerated
2017-07-08 David Anderson 
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-07-06 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_query.c(_dwarf_get_value_ptr): Did an add that could
      overflow and segv given certain fuzzing and a certain
      run time data layout. Fixed so the bad data is detected now
      and libdwarf returns an error code. A place
      in _dwarf_extract_address_from_debug_addr()
      that an overflow might possibly occur fixed too.
2017-06-29 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_elf_access.c: Added R_SPARC_TLS_DTPOFF32
      for the EM_SPARC32PLUS.
2017-06-03 David Anderson 
    * dwarf_form.c,dwarf_frame2.c: Now use 
      _dwarf_decode_s_leb128_chk(), the checked form.
    * dwarf_leb.c: Deleted _dwarf_decode_u_leb128() and
      _dwarf_decode_s_leb128(), they are no longer used.
    * dwarf_reloc_386.h: Removed some trailing whitespace.
    * dwarf_util.h: Removed READ_UNALIGNED macro. Removed
      declarations of the deleted two functions
      _dwarf_decode_u_leb128() and _dwarf_decode_s_leb128()
2017-05-30 David Anderson
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c: Added commentary about the DW_AT_dwo_id
      found only in experimental DWARF4.
    * libdwarf.h.in: Added commentary about Dwarf_Sig8 struct.
2017-05-28 David Anderson
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-05-25 David Anderson
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
    * dwarf_reloc_386.h: Added so dwarfdump can print
      i386 relocations sensibly.
    * dwarf_elf_access.c: For WIN32 added dwarf_reloc_386.h include.
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * dwarf_elf_access.c: Added R_X86_64_PC32 to
      the list of relocations we can expect to see.
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * dwarf_opaque.h: Now names _dwarf_destroy_group_map so the
      group map destructor can be called when cleaning up a Dwarf_Debug.
    * dwarf_alloc.c: Call _dwarf_destroy_group_map().
    * dwarf_groups.c: Implemented _dwarf_destroy_group_map()
      to clean up the map. 
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * dwarf_init_finish.c: One argument was unused in
      is_a_special_section_semi_dwarf() so removed
      that argument. Function is local (static) so safe
      to change it. Avoids a compiler warning.
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * libdwarf2.1.mm: Filling in documentation of the new sections.
      Rev 2.58. There is more on this to do.
    * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
    * dwarf_groups.c: Inserted a space so things lined up, one place.
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documenting new functions
      including .debug_names access and group operations.
      Rev 2.57. There is more on this to do.
    * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated.
2017-05-18 David Anderson
    * libdwarf2.1.mm: Documenting new functions
      including .debug_names access and group operations.
      Rev 2.56.
2017-05-14 David Anderson
    * libdwarf2.1.mm: Added a comment about a special
      case of dwarf_get_section_count().  Rev 2.55 now.
    * CMakeLists.txt, Makefile.in: Add dwarf_groups.c(.o),
      a new source file.
    * dwarf_elf_access.c: Added trailing _doas to a local variable so 
      related uses easily found with grep. Added some sections to
      the relocatables sections list.
    * dwarf_errmsg_list.c: Added six new error codes related to groups.
    * dwarf_groups.c: New file to deal with both split-dwarf and
      comdat groups.  Added section name to the struct for improved reporting from
      dwarfdump. Much easier to understand groups this way.
      Added array of dwo section names so those group 2 names get the
      right group (and obviously get it right).
    * dwarf_init_finish.c: most of the new code for groups is in this
      file.  Now accomodates non-dwarf
      SHT_GROUP sections by figuring out they should
      be ignored. Fixed some indentation issues.
      Added critical commentary to make it easier to follow the
      handling of groups.
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c: Named a local for a call so the call would
      not have an unadorned 0.
    * dwarf_opaque.h: New fields for comdat groups. A new small
      struct, Dwarf_Group_Data_s has the data so it's all in
      one place.
    * dwarf_query.c: Trailing blank lines deleted.
      Added a few lines of #if 0 code, for debugging.
    * libdwarf.h.in: New error codes and new functions for section
      groups.
2017-04-29 David Anderson
    * pro_arange.c,pro_init.c, pro_opaque.h, pro_section.c, pro_types.c:
      Renamed de_reloc_name function pointer as 
      de_relocate_by_name_symbol.
      Most relocation points use a single section-name elf symbol as
      the relocation reference.
      Renamed de_reloc_pair function pointer as 
      de_relocate_pair_by_symbol.
      dump_bytes() debug code is now #if 0. Deleted set but not used
      local variable in _dwarf_pro_generate_debuginfo().
2017-04-21 David Anderson
    * pro_section.c: Improved commentary on the abbrev section
      offset and on the backpatch of overall CU length once CU
      generated.
2017-04-20 David Anderson
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c: declaration of local separated from definition
      for easier insertion of debug stuff. Nothing substantive done.
    * dwarf_errmsg_list.c,libdwarf.h.in: Added 
      DW_DLE_UNIT_TYPE_NOT_HANDLED.
    * dwarf_util.c: Fixed setup of debug_info header field reader.
      output code.
2017-04-20 David Anderson
    * pro_section.c: A harmless(!) comment-within-comment
      removed.
2017-04-20 David Anderson
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-04-20 David Anderson
    * configure.in: Added additional gcc -W to --enable-wall.
    * configure: Regenerated.
    * dwarf_errmsg_list.c: Added new error codes in
      new DWARF5 support.
    * dwarf_line_table_reader_common.c: Improved comments and
      added specific code for DWARF5 (just clarity here,
      no real change).
    * dwarf_opaque.h: Removed unused declaration of cc_at_comp_dir.
    * dwarf_print_lines.c: Update copyright year.
    * libdwarf.h.in: Added new DW_DLE codes.
    * pro_alloc.c: Added tdestroy for the de_debug_line_str_hashtab
      to support a .debug_line_str section.
    * pro_arange.c: Renamed local variables for greater clarity
      and fixed an improper length write to be offset_size.
    * pro_die.c: Generalized _dwarf_insert_or_find_in_debug_str()
      so it can apply to the debug_str or debug_line_str sections.
    * pro_finish.c: We have new statistics arrangement
      to aid in getting statistics on debug_str and 
      debug_line_str independently.
      So a little change needed to get things to compile.
    * pro_frame.c: Now sets cie_version properly for all
      DWARF versions.
    * pro_frame.h: cie_version field changed to proper size (Dwarf_Half).
    * pro_init.c: Support for .debug_line_str strings added.
      Corrected ancient serious botch in setting up 64bit output.
      Tweaked the version setup a little (no real change).
      Moved _dwarf_init_default_line_header_vals() call to
      where it actually works right for getting version number.
    * pro_line.c: Unified handling of include directories
      and files so that we can reuse code readily.
      Eliminating one internal struct declaration.
    * pro_line.h: Added new fields for DWARF5 data.
      Deleted struct Dwarf_P_Inc_Dir_s.
    * pro_opaque.h: Rearranged section codes and strings
      and added in DWARF5 sections.
      Added fields to Dwarf_P_Line_Inits_s for DWARF5 support.
      Revised struct Dwarf_P_Stats_s and Dwarf_P_Debug_s 
      for DWARF5 support.
    * pro_section.c: Added DWARF5 sections to tables and
      began the addition to generation of these sections.
      Refactored debug_line header output for clarity,
      DWARF5 support, and to avoid code duplication.
2017-04-19 David Anderson
    * dwarf_opaque.h: Deleted the unused field cc_at_comp_dir.
2017-04-17 David Anderson
    * pro_init.c(common_init): Handling of 64bit offsets
      was coded wrong, the length field would be emitted
      incorrectly (confusing standard 64bit offset dwarf
      with non-standard IRIX 64bit offset dwarf).
2017-04-17 David Anderson
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
    * dwarf_dnames.c: Fixed indentation of a few lines.
    * dwarf_frame2.c: Deleted the argument fde_eh_encoding_out

      that _dwarf_print_line_context_record() was never
      implemented.
    * libdwarf.h.in: Deleted mistaken declarations
      dwarf_srcfiles_b(), dwarf_get_macro(),
      and dwarf_get_all_defined_macros().
      No such functions were ever defined.
2017-04-12 David Anderson
    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-04-12 David Anderson
    * dwarf_alloc.c: Renamed function as _dwarf_debugnames_destructor().
    * dwarf_dnames.c: Implemented a suite of new functions to allow
      reading .debug_names. dwarf_debugnames_header() is
      the entry point to get .debug_names information.
    * dwarf_dnames.h: new structs and fields to complete
      getting access to .debug_names section data.
    * dwarf_form.c: Refactored so dwarf_dnames.c has

      and Dwarf_Dnames_Head.
    * dwarf_dnames.c,dwarf_dnames.h: Skeleton implemenatation 
      of .debug_denames section reader.

    * pro_section.c: Now defines _dwarf_pro_generate_debug_names,
      and _dwarf_pro_generate_debug_names.
      A skeleton implementation.
2017-04-02 David Anderson
    * checkexamples.c: Slight change in a comment.

    * dwarf_arange.c: Now uses DW_DLE_ADDRESS_SIZE_ZERO
      to be more precise about the error found in the object.
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c: Adding DWARF5 cu header reading.
      Adding support to more fully support split dwarf.
      Fixed some potential leaks (in case of erroneous DWARF).
      New functions that add functionality where needed
      to deal with reading split dwarf DWARF5.
    * dwarf_errmsg_list.c: Clarified DW_DLE_ADDRESS_SIZE_ERROR 
      string and added DW_DLE_IMPROPER_DWO_ID DW_DLE_GROUPNUMBER_ERROR
      and DW_DLE_ADDRESS_SIZE_ZERO.
    * dwarf_form.c,dwarf_loc.c: Fixed trailing whitespace.
    * dwarf_init_finish.c: Added support so split dwarf
      can be read properly.
      New function dwarf_object_init_b() is part of that support.
    * dwarf_opaque.c: Added de_groupnumber. Clarified
      some fields with commentary.
    * dwarf_original_elf_init.c: New functions
      dwarf_init_b() dwarf_elf_init_b() for groupnumber
      support.
    * dwarf_query.c: Removed trailing whitespace.
    * dwarf_xu_index.c: Moved static declaration so it
      is useful in more places in this source.
    * libdwarf.h.in: Added DW_GROUPNUMBER_ANY, DW_GROUPNUMBER_BASE,
      DW_GROUPNUMBER_DWO as part of giving better
      split dwarf support.
      Declared the new global functions mentioned just above.

    * dwarf_query.c(dwarf_dietype_offset): dwarf_dietype_offset()
      leaked a Dwarf_Attribute. The one line fix
      removes the leak.

    * gennames.c: Update version string.
2017-03-21 David Anderson
    * dwarf_form.c: Vulnerability DW201703-006
      and DW201703-001 fixed.
      Some types of form were not checked as being in bounds.
    * dwarf_leb.c: Vulnerability DW201703-002 fixed.
      A check for out of bounds was done after the
      relevant dereference. Fixed.
    * dwarf_loc.c: Vulnerability DW201703-005 fixed.
      _dwarf_read_loc_expr_op() was failing to check for
      a bounds violation.
    * dwarf_query.c: Vulnerability DW201703-006.
      A call to _dwarf_reference_outside_section()
      did not pass a sufficiently careful argument list,
      so a bounds violation was missed.

    * checkexamples.c: Updated dwarf_discr_list example
      with a cast to match function declaration.
    * libdwarf2.1.mm: Updated dwarf_discr_list example
      with a cast to match function declaration.
    * libdwarf2.1.pdf: Regenerated. Version 2.53

2017-03-04 David Anderson
    * dwarf_loc2.c(_dwarf_get_locdesc_c): Renamed to _dwarf_get_locdesc_op_c
      and corrected the handling so offsets properly dealt with
      and so a final empty operator is synthesized properly into an
      end operator like DWARF5.
2017-01-30 David Anderson
    * dwarf_die_deliv.c(_dwarf_make_CU_Context): Recent change
      in dwarf.h for DWARF5 package files required a small change
      here.
    * dwarf_xu_index.c(dwarf_get_xu_section_names): Recent change
      in dwarf.h for DWARF5 package files required a small change
      here and in dwp_secnames[].
    * dwarf.h: Now matches final DWARF5.
2017-01-23 David Anderson
    * config.h.in.cmake,configure,configure.cmake,configure.in,
      CMakeLists.txt,Makefile.in:
      Add checks for sys/elf_386.h sys/elf_amd64.h sys/elf_SPARC.h  so
      relocations noticed for Solaris.
      Better diagostic about not-building archive or shared library.
    * configure: Regenerated
    * dwarf_elf_access.c: Ifdef added for sys/elf_386.h,sys/elf_amd64.h,
      sys/elf_SPARC.h so Solaris relocations are found.
    * Makefile.in
2017-01-02 David Anderson
    * dwarf.h: DWARF5 added new DW_UT codes compared
      to earlier DWARF5 drafts.
