Re: dwarf2 eh for alpha, mark 2

Irix is ambiguous.  Irix6 was in fact the first target to use dwarf2
eh, so the code certainly does work under Irix, and has always worked under

SGI's Irix5 assembler is really an ECOFF assembler pretending to be an ELF
assembler, and hence is unable to support DWARF2, so this was disabled for
irix5 unless you configure with GNU as.  In practice, everyone uses GNU as
because -g won't work otherwise, and hence everyone using Irix5 is using
the dwarf2 eh code.

I see now however that dwarf2 eh was accidentally disabled for irix6 when
it was disabled for irix5.  Argh.  This happened in February, and I am
even the bozo who broke it.  I checked in the following patch to fix it.
