Thank you for all the responses. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make
any progress on creating the patches today. I'll be sure to add
everyone who expressed interest here to the phabricator diff once I
have them ready.

Jonas, do you have any dsymutil patches I can look at? I am interested
in seeing what kind of interfaces are you using, particularly on the
reading side. I think the current DWARFAcceleratorTable interface will
need to be redesigned a bit if we want it to fit the dwarf5 tables as
