Cary Coutant - Aug. 31, 2012, 11:55 p.m.
This patch is for the google/gcc-4_7 branch.

This patch fixes a problem caused by the previous patch that removed
the code to copy children of a DIE referenced by a type unit.

The problem was that it IS necessary to copy the children of a
non-declaration -- such as a DW_TAG_array_type.  I've restored the
loop that calls clone_tree_partial, but placed it within a test
for is_declaration_die.

Bootstraps and passes regression tests. Also tested with parts of the
GDB testsuite, and is still able to build a large internal test case
that previously resulted in out-of-memory during compilation.

Google ref b/7041390.

	* gcc/dwarf2out.c (clone_tree_partial): Restore.
	(copy_decls_walk): Call clone_tree_partial to copy children
	of non-declaration DIEs.
