[PATCH] Support inline stacks in objdump

From: Andi Kleen <>

For some analysis it is useful to know inline stacks (similar to
addr2line -i) in objdump. This patch adds a new option --inlines
that extends the existing -l output to also display inline stacks
using the already existing BFD support.

There is no attempt to dedup the inline stacks. Each line gets
its own complete inline stack.

v2: Addressed review feedback.
Use bfd_boolean. Use always --inlines correctly. Avoid tabs.
Fix format character.

2017-03-20  Andi Kleen  <>

	* objdump.c (unwind_inlines): Add.
	(option_values): Add OPTION_INLINES.
	(show_line): Unwind inlines.
	(main): Parse OPTION_INLINES.
	(usage): Document --inlines.
	* doc/binutils.texi: Document --inlines
