Re: [PATCH] Don't emit certain artificial names into DW_AT_name in debug info


I think it may well be worthwhile to emit some DW_AT_description for these.
Perhaps just the made-up name is not that useful in DW_AT_description, but
then perhaps it is.  They could also be slightly prettified things a human
might grok, like "omp worker for foo.c:123", "omp data bundle for foo.c:123",
"array descriptor for [17,23]", etc.

But certainly all that is optional, just eye candy deep internal data
displays in a debugger.  Omitting DW_AT_name is what's really necessary for
correctness.


Thanks,
Roland
