This patch enhances how gdb handles assembler and has no performance issues and no size issues after striping.

Does gcc not pass '-g' through to the assembler backend? When I added -Wa,-gdwarf-2 I saw no change in file sizes.

If not, then still would -Wa,-g not be better? It should use the best debug format for the target system, just as -g does for gcc. Otherwise I would think we should be using -gdwarf-2 for C files as well.
