[Dwarf-discuss] Location lists and linker relaxation

Anyone know of a linker that implements address
relaxation which fixes up location list entries?

LocList entries are offsets from the start of the
compilation unit.  This avoids the linker having to
relocate the data.  It also means that the linker
doesn't see that the values need to be changed
when the offsets change.
