Sounds good. Thanks for fixing it in pahole! People may use gcc 4.9 up
to gcc 10, or llvm compiler (let us say llvm10 which is the version
which has CO-RE support and is recommended for compiling bpf
programs.) Once you have fix for gcc 8.2, it might be worthwhile to
check a few other gcc/llvm version (at least gcc8/9/10 and llvm10)
to ensure it still works.

Currently, by default kernel is using DWARF2, pahole has a good
support for dwarf2. I am not sure whether it supports dwarf4 well
or not. But I think additional dwarf4 support, if needed, can
be done a little bit later as dwarf4 is not widely used yet for kernel,
I think.
