We have customers that rely on the symbol information from the 
"pubnames" section in the DWARF data.  Generation of this information 
was removed in this commit:

     Remove the pubnames section, no one consumes it.

     git-svn-id: https://llvm.org/svn/llvm-project/llvm/trunk@144169 

I could submit a patch that brings it back (some tweaks were needed). 
Is this something you could consider?
