[Dwarf-Discuss] DwarfExtensions

Hi,

For the elfutils project (https://fedorahosted.org/elfutils/), which
includes libdw a DWARF consumer library used by programs like perf,
systemtap and the dwarves tools, I wrote up a wiki page with all the
DWARF extensions known to the library:

https://fedorahosted.org/elfutils/wiki/DwarfExtensions

elfutils is mainly focused on supporting the GNU toolchain, so the list
is somewhat GNU specific, but does contain extensions from other
"vendors" adopted by GNU.

I tried to include links to all the descriptions that I could find,
which producer generates them and/or whether the extension has been
proposed for DWARF5. But there are still a lot of unknowns. Do others
have similar overviews for extensions DWARF producers generate and/or
consumers recognize? Or just links to descriptions of the extensions
currently listed as "unknown"?

Thanks,

Mark
