Actually, upon thinking about it, I think the files_in_use check should
be removed. The "first" file in GCC is numbered '1', which will make
files_in_use == 2. But even if there is more than one '.file'
directive, if there are no .loc directives I don't see how the
.debug_file section serves any purpose...
