            Bug ID: 40072
           Summary: llvm-symbolizer: Improve GNU compatibility of
                    --functions switch

There are a few compatibility issues between llvm-symbolizer's --functions
switch and GNU addr2line's --functions switch. It would be good to fix these:
1) -f is not an alias for --functions.
2) --functions expects to take an argument in llvm-symbolizer, but not in GNU
3) GNU's default behaviour is to not print function names by default (i.e.
--functions=none), but llvm-symbolizer does --functions=linkage. We should
investigate why this decision was made to be different, and consider the impact
of changing (I don't think we can change the default, but it's probably worth
investigating anyway).
