How is this represented in DWARF?

I am sorry, I normally use the git mirror and this branch doesn't seem
to be there and I don't know how to get the svn branch. So I don't know
if this question is easily satisfied by the code already by just looking
at the dwarf2out.c changes. If so, my apologies and please just point me
at the patch or commit.

Thanks,

Mark
