Hello All,

In DWARF2, I have some trouble understanding why GCC is generating 
negative offsets for DW_AT_bit_offset field of structure using bitfields 
(C language). The target is little-endian.

Incidentally I happen to come across the endianity issues discussed in 
http://dwarfstd.org/ShowIssue.php?issue=081130.1&type=closed3


It mentions the original problem described in three emails -

"
Brender email of 2008-05-17
Robinson email of 2008-05-19
Allen email of 2008-07-07
"


I tried searching them in dwarf-discuss archives but could not find. Can 
someone give me the links to the above conversations?

Thanks


Anitha
