Or is there another way?
At a guess it should be like DW_AT_ranges:
      .long   .Ldebug_ranges0+0x0     # DW_AT_ranges

I.E. dw2_asm_output_offset, rather than dw2_asm_output_delta, in GCC.

It's supposed to be the offset from the beginning of the debug_loc section.
Will this do that?
I think so.  The result will be something like .Ldebug_ranges0 +
(.LLST0-.Ldebug_loc0).  If the assembler won't take that then we'll
have to track addresses for loclists the same as we do for rangelists.
Why simple .long .LLST0 is not sufficient (@secrel(.LLST0) on IA-64)?
It is not the only place where gcc relies on VMA of debugging sections
to be 0 if the architecture lacks section relative relocations.
I suppose that would work.  Do you know why DW_AT_ranges is done the
way it is?
