_elfutils_ rebased to version 0.172

The _elfutils_ packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.172. This update adds support for the DWARF5 debug information format, split-dwarf, and GNU DebugFission:

* The `eu-readelf` tool can display split unit DIEs when the `--debug-dump=info+` option is used.
* The `eu-readelf` tool can inspect separate `.dwo` DWARF "skeleton files" with debug information when the `--dwarf-skeleton` option is used.
* The *libdw* library now tries to resolve the "alt file" containing linked debug information even when it has not yet been set with the `dwarf_set_alt()` function.
* The *libdw* library has been extended with the functions `dwarf_die_addr_die()`, `dwarf_get_units()`, `dwarf_getabbrevattr_data()` and `dwarf_cu_info()`.

Description David Smith 2018-04-10 18:25:58 UTC
We plan to incorporate soon to be released upstream elfutils into RHEL 7.6.

Comment 4 Mark Wielaard 2018-06-12 06:19:23 UTC
We are going with 0.172, which has not functional changes over 0.171, but lots of bug fixes for handling bad DWARF5 data.
