[ELF] Fix fetching source line, when file has multiple "AX" sections

Authored by evgeny777 on Oct 28 2016, 6:03 AM.



Very often object file would have multiple .text.* sections instead of one. This happens if you have comdat groups (use C++ templates) or compile C/C++ source
using -ffunction-sections compiler argument. In this case LLVM DWARF parser needs help fetching source line from .debug_line section, because it is not possible
to distinguish input section given its address (in ELF object file all sections have zero VA).

This patch implements DWARF parser LoadedObjectInfo interface to return fake VA for each section, which is equal to section file offset.

Section names don't need to be unique. You need to used the section index.

For an easy example use -fno-unique-section-names.

Unfortunately SectionRef doesn't allow getting it. Probably makes sense to propose patch to ELFObjectFile.h first and get Offset directly from SectionRef

Both functions are small, so I'd inline them here.

You can use auto or just return static_cast<const ELFSectionRef &>(Sec)->getOffset();.
