I haven't been able to keep up with all the lldb happenings lately, so it's possible I have missed something, but can you give a summary (or point me to one) of what is the problem with abi tags in lldb. For example, why isn't the DW_AT_linkage_name string sufficient to find the correct function?

I am somewhat sceptical that this is the best way to fix this problem. As you've said yourself, the "alternate name" machinery is a last resort, and the things that it's doing are wrong on several levels (and quite slow). To tell the truth, I've been hoping that we could get rid of it completely one day. Relying on this mechanism for "core" functionality would preclude that from happening...
