Well, if only the default is changed in elfos.h, I don't think it is a major
change, since it matters just for a few platforms.
If it is changed in other config files (e.g. for Linux in linux.h) for
several primary GCC platforms, I wouldn't call it a minor change either.

If GCC declared it would like to switch to DWARF-2 for 3.1, maybe some GDB
folks could reprioritize work on DWARF-2 reader.
