    Sdk: Create build-ID-based hard links to detached debug symbols · 5064f977
    Simon McVittie authored
    Legacy path-based names are more difficult to use against a sysroot:
    if your sysroot is in ~/sysroot and your detached debug symbols are
    in ~/symbols, and you want to find detached debug symbols for
    ~/sysroot/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfoo.so.0 by using
    "gdb -iex set-debug-file-directory /home/me/symbols:/usr/lib/debug",
    then you would have to create a symlink
    ~/symbols/home/me/sysroot/usr pointing to ~/symbols/usr. Build-ID-based
    names do not have this issue.
    This change is based on code in steam-runtime, which uses symbolic
    links. Hard links are a somewhat better fit for OSTree, since they
    are automatically deduplicated, and also have the advantage that
    multiple .build-id directories can easily be combined with rsync.
