I implemented it in LLVM.  I am not offering to implement it in GNU binutils
as I can't say I know my way around there, or know the current state of
gcc/binutils support for DWARF v5 in general.

Sure.  Is that sourceware.org/bugzilla?  It doesn't seem to like the
account I created for gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla a few years ago, but maybe they 
are separate?  Private reply is fine.
