I have found that the assertions happened at least due to
SymbolFileDWARF::GetTypeForDIE() which finds a function for the DIE from
DW_AT_partial_unit which is then missing or different than the expected one.
It then asserts somewhere in clang that the context is unexpected.

The problem with non-unique DW_AT_partial_unit DIEs is that
DWARFDebugInfoEntry::GetParent() cannot work for them but LLDB does depend on
that method.

If you think it is workaroundable I can get deeper into it but this is why I
decided each effective (=imported) DIE should have its unique lldb::user_id_t.


I had in my old notes some such dump:
