> Adrian/Paul: Pondering this, any thoughts on how conflicts in the vendor extension range of attributes, forms, etc, should be resolved if they ever come up? (each vendor is free to define them as they wish, so it could be that multiple vendors have different definitions of the same code/number & would be ambiguous) I don't see any reason to block this patch if it doesn't have such a conflict, since there are already other vendor extension codes supported here for a variety of vendors - but does make me wonder.

We will have to solve it by special-casing the ID and providing a command-line option if we can't disambiguate the true nam/meaning from the context. (E.g., if there was a hypothetical APPLE extension conflicting with a SUN extension and the object file is Mach-O then we could deduce that we should decide for the APPLE extension).

Let's hope we don't have to, though.

On a related note — it would be great if we could import all vendor extensions specified in David Anderson's libdwarf into LLVM.
