Comment (by bdubbs):

 Version 0.173

 More fixes for crashes and hangs found by afl-fuzz. In particular various
 functions now detect and break infinite loops caused by bad DIE tree
 cycles.
 {{{
 readelf: Will now lookup the size and signedness of constant value types
          to display them correctly (and not just how they were encoded).

 libdw: New function dwarf_next_lines to read CU-less .debug_line data.
        dwarf_begin_elf now accepts ELF files containing just .debug_line
        or .debug_frame sections (which can be read without needing a DIE
        tree from the .debug_info section).
        Removed dwarf_getscn_info, which was never implemented.

 backends: Handle BPF simple relocations.
           The RISCV backends now handles ABI specific CFI and knows about
           RISCV register types and names.
