This patch makes the 'debug_aranges' entry optional. If the entry is
empty, yaml2obj will only emit the header for it.

It seems to me like you don't need this vector? Could you do Y.DebugAranges.emplace() to instantiate the vector in this case?

Actually I do it deliberately here. IMHO, if the parser encounters an error below, debug_aranges entry should keep empty.

In the implementation of adding DWARF support to elf2yaml, the basic idea is that firstly, we try to parse DWARF sections into the "DWARF:" entry, if the parser fails, elf2yaml will consume that error and continue to dump it as raw content. If we don't do it here, the "DWARF:" will have an incomplete section.

Shall we wait for the patch that adds DWARF support to elf2yaml to see if it works?

Seems that some bots are not happy with this patch, I'll look into it.

Thanks for the explanation. What you say makes sense to me.
