Request for approval: Allow Java's ELF symtab reader to use separate debuginfo files

I've been told That Tom had suggested an alternative fix, I had not seen this
email. But if adding symbols to the mapfiles fixes it, then than seems
Does adding in the ability to read alternative debuginfo files provide
some additional functionality?

I think a better fix is to add the required gHotSpot* symbols to the mapfile so that they are always exported. This way
jmap would work even if the debug symbols for libjvm.so weren't installed on the machine. I actually thought we already
did this because we explicitly export a few vtbls for use by the SA but apparently we don't. I must have been thinking
of windows where you have to explicitly export them or they won't show up at all. Anyway, adding this to the mapfiles
will allow it work as is:
# SA symbols
Would this be acceptable?
