Summary and Info:

We currently only look at the .debug_info section of readelf's output, finding DW_AT_name/DW_AT_comp_dir pair to grab file names. That gets the main compilation units, but misses header files. Header files can contain small functions, and so would be useful in debugging.

We can additionally look in the .debug_line section. This section has a table of directories that source files come from (which can be filtered to remove system directories), and a file name table with files from each directory. This does not include the files we currently grab.

This task depends upon

It would be great if a fix, even if not perfect, could be released. At least the current situation is quite bad.

I have also found cases of source files being installed to the same path they were copied from (e.g. `/tmp/qt5-base/src/...` instead of `/usr/src/debug/...`). Does the currently proposed patch also fix this?

@magiblot: that seems a completely separate bug. Please file a new bug with details.
