For non-trivial patches we have to get this... I can get you started

No, I don't have one. I never needed it because until now I've only
written fairly small patches to FSF source code. However, it indeed
might not be a bad idea to finally go through with it, because I may
start getting more involved in brushing up GDB's support for Pascal.
So yes, please.
Does starting the process entail anything besides filling out http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnulib.git/tree/doc/Copyright/request-assign.future
and mailing it in?

I've appended the corresponding change from elfread.c.
You probably want something a bit more like this. The delayed symfile
stuff only works if you also arrange to create the quick addrmap.
Thanks. I've now adjusted the machoread.c code in a similar way, but
there's no change in the behaviour. I'll take it to the main gdb
mailing list, with a CC to Tristan Gingold.
Or, you can just set the new field to NULL. All this means is that
you won't get lazy loading of debug info.
That causes a crash when symfile.c:897 calls this function
