Roll the "Val" variable into the if condition to reduce its scope:

if (Optional<uint64_t> Val = formValue.getAsUnsignedConstant())

Name = AttributeValueString(attr, Val.getValue());

(personally I prefer using the pointer-like interface of Optional (so I would write "*Val" rather than "Val.getValue()") but opinions differ and there's no solid convention in the codebase so far - so do whichever you prefer, I just mention it in case you aren't aware of it)

Mistaken indentation here? (looks like a 4 space instead of a 2, but it might be the review software being weird)

As a follow-up, if you like, all these functions should /probably/ be modified to return StringRef, that way we don't have to compute their length later on (or do null-test walks) in printing functions, etc.

Should the type of Attr be something more type-safe? (the actual enum of DWARF attributes)

This line is unreachable (so far as I can see?) and should be deleted.

(alternatively you could leave this one and remove the default case from the switch)

Will do. I wasn't aware of Optional::operator*. I'll use it.

No the indentation is really off.

I first wrote it like that, but I was finding the cast at the call site awkward. I can add it back, but we have no guarantee that the data we've read from the DWARF file will actually be a known Attribute, thus I find it more accurate to allow all values.

I actually wondered while writing the code if all supported compilers could correctly do the control flow analysis that proves that the second return is unnecessary. I added the default case to prevent warnings about missed cases when I was using a typed enum Attr, but now the default case can just go away.

Looks good with your responses (& implied/pending updates) to the last round of comments, please commit once you've made those changes.
