Hi Jini,

Thanks, I could replicate it with that.  The difference between g++
and clang++ building that testcase with -gdwarf-4
-fdebug-types-section is that g++ always creates the actual type DIE
as a top-level DIE in the type unit, while clang++ can create a deeper
embedded type DIE. If g++ needs the type to be nested (for example
inside a namespace, it will still create a top-level DIE with a
DW_AT_specification pointing to the nested type. Which is why we never
saw this assert accidentially trigger in the g++ case.

I pushed the patch.
