It would be great to know this from the DWARF so we don't have to end up setting the ASM name for every single possibly affected DIE...

I'm afraid DW_AT_linkage *is* that attribute. If you don't want to explicitly set the mangled name for each entity with a DW_AT_linkage_name, the way to do this is to add a DWARF extension like DW_AT_GNU_abi_tag or something. How does GDB/gcc handle this? Maybe they already invented an encoding for the attribute?
