Hi, allow me the following question, please:

Is there a description how to use that mode?

I tried to follow with
emacs 22 and that step appeared to pass successfully.

With M-X package-install-file and the patched dwarf-mode.el
emacs babbles:

I also tried the following in .emacs:

(load "~/dwarf-mode.el" t t)

M-x dwarf-mode is recognized but it says then
