Oops, that's right. How about:
/* We don't need to do anything unless:
- Some debug information was recorded via .file/.loc
- or, we are generating DWARF2 information ourself (--gdwarf2)
- or, there is a user-provided .debug_info section which could
reference the file table in the .debug_line section we generate
if (all_segs == NULL
&& debug_type != DEBUG_DWARF2
Where the bit after the last && is "there is no user .debug_info"
section (which I can't figure out how to say in gas).
