The first is the macro ASM_OUTPUT_DWARF_DELTA, which seems like

a non-default value for the one target.
The comment at the beginning of dw2_asm_output_delta seems relevant. Why
does your implementation work for Darwin, when that comment suggests it
The Darwin assembler (gas 1.38 + years of in-parallel hacking) just
wants a pair of relocs, doesn't care about where the labels are defined.
I don't know what assembler the comment might be referring to.
But just for grins, I tried taking this bit out, and it no longer seems
to be necessary - must have been some cross-section deltas that went
away. Running testsuite now to see if there are any oddball situations
that I've overlooked...
The second is the TERMINATE_EH_FRAME_INFO, which looks kludgy to
me, but I'm not clear on how this ought to be done. The crux of
the problem is that EH_FRAME_SECTION_NAME should not be set for
Darwin, because it enables ELFish bits we don't really want.
Perhaps the zero-termination choice ought to be a generic target
It's already kludgy; this should have been handled better when the target
hook for eh_frame_section was added.
One option would be to terminate it only if targetm.eh_frame_section is
still set to the default function. Speaking of which, it probably makes
sense to have two different default functions, depending on whether or not
EH_FRAME_SECTION_NAME is defined.
That makes sense, thanks - I'll experiment a bit.
