Hmm. Would you mind if I change the

addr2line -fpie $objfile $hexaddr | sed "s;$dir_prefix;;"


addr2line -fpie $objfile $hexaddr |
sed "s; at $dir_prefix\(\./\)*; at ;"

instead? There's two changes there: matching the " at " part (to just
make the match stricter) but also matching any following "./" thing
(which shows up for our include tree files, at least for me).

With that, all the cases I threw at it looked pretty good.

But the stricter matching might not matter, of course, and maybe there
is some addr2line version that doesn't do that? So I'm checking here..
