There's a small detail wrong with the DWARF line number information: your code
makes wrong assumptions when the line number state machine register state is
reset. The DWARF specification says it's reset after DW_LNE_end_sequence, but
as your code resets the register state, it doesn't emit a DW_LNE_end_sequence.
The result is that some address/line number ranges in .debug_line are
completely bogus.

This patch provides a simple fix by moving DW_LNE_end_sequence to where it is

(Note that some DWARF consumers, such as GNU BFD, are able to deal with the
buggy line number information.)

(I hope the wrong-code keyword isn't inappropriate here.)

Note that this bug is unrelated to bug 3214, which has yet to be fixed.
