Re: [patch] Add discriminators to DWARF line table

I've verified that this is the case, but I did find one thing that I
needed to change. The simple comparison of loci fails if just the
column number differs, so I needed to make the test for same line
number a bit more intelligent. Here's a revised patch that checks just
the file and line number for equality. (The only differences from the
first patch are in the new same_line_p function and in the
assign_discriminator function.)

One could say that as long as the column number is different, we don't
actually need a discriminator, but gcc currently does not output the
column information to DWARF, and I don't want to require it to, as
that would bloat the line number table far more than the relatively
rare discriminator.
