Since stage 1 opened up I would like to request approval again to push
this. Patch rebased to current master attached.

Thanks,

    Add DW_AT_const_value as unsigned or int depending on type and value used.
    
    As the comment in the code already indicated DWARF2 does provide
    DW_FORM_sdata/DW_FORM_udata to represent signed/unsigned data.
    Enumeration constants wider than HOST_WIDE_INT are already handled
    separately. Those constant values that do fit a HOST_WIDE_INT can
    be encoded as signed or unsigned depending on type and value for
    more efficient encoding.
    
    	* dwarf2out.c (gen_enumeration_type_die): Add DW_AT_const_value
    	as unsigned or int depending on type and value used.
