Unfortunately I have not received any more feedback for this patch, or the alternative version D78801 <https://reviews.llvm.org/D78801>, so I assumed it won't move forward :(
Meanwhile, I have created a personal fork (https://github.com/paolosevMSFT/llvm-project/tree/WasmDbg).

I still think that it would be very useful to add support for Wasm debugging to LLDB. Especially in scenarios where Wasm is not used as part of a web app, but server side (node.js) or running on micro runtime for IoT devices.
I know that there is the problem that LLDB does not support segmented address spaces, and so this patch requires a couple of tiny but smelly changes to core code.
>From the mailing list I seem to remember that somebody was working to add support for segmented addresses, but I don't know what is the current state of the initiative.

I'd be happy to keep working on this, please let me know what I could do to progress toward an acceptable solution.
