This should be an 'xfail', not a 'shouldfail'.

Unfortunately I don't think we ever had a mechanism to do
platform-specific xfails in the libjava testsuite. You could certainly
add that, but maybe just making the line numbers work would be a more
productive use of time :)

Note you don't need dwarf4 to make sourcelocation work (comment in the
test case is a bit misleading). You just need some way to read the
source line number info, whatever format it is in.
