Hi Richard,

This means it is time to get things you want to have in GCC 6 finalized
and reviewed.  As usual there may be exceptions to late reviewed features
but don't count on that.  Likewise target specific features can sneak in
during Stage 3 if maintainers ok them.

This is just to point out I have series of DWARF-related patches
awaiting reviews for several months. I plan to rebase against trunk,
retest and resubmit them shortly but hereâs an overview:

   * The patch series for transition to standard DWARF for Ada
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-08/msg01857.html). There are 8
patches, each one depending on the previous one, except the 6/8 one
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-07/msg01361.html) which could
go on its own.

   * Fix DW_AT_static_link generation in DWARF
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-08/msg01855.html). The
corresponding support in GDB is in the development branch.

   * Track indirect calls as call site information in DWARF
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-08/msg01856.html).

   * Materialize subprogram renamings in Ada as imported declarations in
DWARF (https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2015-08/msg01854.html). The
corresponding support in GDB is in the development branch.
I've been leaving all that stuff to Jason & Jakub. My knowledge of dwarf, both the specs and our implementation is so limited that my review would be worthless.
