Re: DWARF2 FDE Address Mismatch
Okay -- I have a patch which works for our arch. I haven't tested it on
a stable arch yet though to ensure it doesn't break anything.
The change is to call read_encoded_value() if eh_frame_p is set;
otherwise dwarf2_read_address() is called. I have modified
dwarf2_read_address to read addresses of size TARGET_ADDR_BIT rather
