[patch] Add offsets to dwarf dump of raw line tables

It's next to impossible to match up relocations with the line number
table program, since the line number table dump doesn't show offsets
within the section. This patch prints the section offset for the
directory table, the file name table, and for each line number table
opcode, making it much easier to find the opcode that matches a
particular relocation. I've also numbered the directory table entries.

OK for trunk?
