Re: archer-swagiaal-using-directive patch on static variables inmethods

The problem is you try to create missing DIEs both for DW_AT_specification and
DW_AT_abstract_origin.  But DWARF3 (, pages 64-66/267)
describes such DIEs inheritance only for DW_AT_abstract_origin and not

So I created a branch where I reverted my patch (1de38657622396795ce681e64b03fb74e81e6c3d) and applied yours (60eb8684d0d85d0884aca7a2f013e5eb16a51d47) and I get one regression in one of my test cases:

namespace G{
  namespace H  {
    int ghx = 6;

namespace I{

  int marker7(){
    using namespace G::H;
    return L::marker8();

Print ghx at marker7 fails.

Problem is that the connection between the function die and its import statement containing parent is a DW_AT_specification. In this case die <87> should be inherited by <2a3>
