From: Caroline Tice <>
This is a temporary workaround. Currently LLVM generates Dwarf version
4 for all of its debug information, including its Debug Frames (CIE)
information. Breakpad cannot handle Dwarf Version 4 (see We
tried reducing all of the Dwarf information to version 3, but that
causes problems with Fission (the splitting of debug information into
separate files), which requires the Dwarf DIEs to be emitted at
version 4. This patch works around that issue by forcing the Debug
Frames version of Dwarf to be version 1, while leaving the rest of the
Dwarf data at version 4. When the replacement for Breakpad comes out
we will no longer need this patch, as that is supposed to be able to
handle version 4 frames information.
