Per the DWARF web site


the correct names of the various versions of the DWARF standard appear
to be either "DWARF Version N" or "DWARF N", rather than e.g. "DWARF2",
"DWARF-2", "dwarf2", or whatever.  This patch to invoke.texi makes usages
reflect the official names.  Similarly, I've fixed up a couple instances
of incorrect usage of "stabs" (official name seems to be all lowercase,
like that) and "ELF".

I like the other changes, but find "DWARF Version N" with an uppercase
V in "Version" a bit unnatural and would prefer to just use the lowercase
"version" here.

Personally, I agree, but I think the principle that we must prefer to call things by their proper/official names takes precedence. The DWARF documentation seems to consistently use uppercase-V "Version" in running text as well as the document titles.
