I'd suggest 'debuginfo' and a Git-alike set of subcommands:

debuginfo help
debuginfo check
debuginfo check framepointers
debuginfo check cfi

Such a command scheme keeps open various future commands, such as:

debuginfo show
debuginfo size
debuginfo compress
debuginfo strip


I also checked that there does not appear to be such a Linux tool with such a name
at the moment.
