(minor cleanup required: gdb's split dwarf support needs -gdb-index, which
means you need a linker that can do that (gold or lld) & also I think the
LLVM_USE_SPLIT_DWARF is incomplete (because it only enables -gsplit-dwarf
but doesn't add the -Wl,-gdb-index flag to the linker action) & so before
recommending it as a mainstream thing should probably be tidied up a
bit/fleshed out to address thoes issues)
