I would think all reasonable debugging backends would benefit from this; we
want to be able to generate correct line number information for macro
expansions in the code. All DWARF2 adds is the ability to refer to macro
names from the debugger (so we could say, i.e. 'p TREE_TYPE (t)', which the
debugger would expand to p t.common.type).
