Subject: [PATCH dwarves 07/11] btf_encoder: discard CUs after BTF encoding
Date: Tue, 29 Sep 2020 21:27:38 -0700
Message-ID: <20200930042742.2525310-8-andriin@fb.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200930042742.2525310-1-andriin@fb.com>

When doing BTF encoding/deduping, DWARF CUs are never used after BTF encoding
is done, so there is no point in wasting memory and keeping them in memory. So
discard them immediately.
