[dsymutil] Don't clone empty CUs

Authored by JDevlieghere on Feb 8 2019, 2:38 PM.



The DWARF standard says that an empty compile unit is not valid:

Each such contribution consists of a compilation unit header (see Section on page 200) followed by a single DW_TAG_compile_unit or DW_TAG_partial_unit debugging information entry, together with its children.

Therefore we shouldn't clone them in dsymutil.

I might be missing something, but empty as in "has no DIEs at all" is invalid. I don't think having one DIE with no children counts as invalid (it might not be really useful, but this review is about it being invalid, right?)

You mean an empty compile unit *header* is not valid, right?

Only skip empty CUs, not DW_TAG_compile_units without children.

@friss Do you remember why that comment is there? Isn't a header without a DW_TAG_compile_unit invalid DWARF?

This change looks reasonable.

This sentence seems incomplete ("Dsymutil should not generate an empty CU and it", "and it" what?)

Must have been because dsymutil-classic was doing it. I don't recall any good reason we would generate this.

This looks like an unrelated NFC commit?
