    gdb/dwarf2read.c: Sanity check DW_AT_sibling values.
    When reading objects with corrupt debug information it is possible that
    the sibling chain can form a loop, which leads to an infinite loop and
    memory exhaustion.
    Avoid this situation by disregarding and DW_AT_sibling values that point
    to a lower address than the current entry.
