greatest of all of the potential text symbols in SECTION. Sets
*NAME and/or *ADDRESS conditionally if that pointer is non-null.
If ENDADDR is non-null, then set *ENDADDR to be the end of the
function (exclusive). If the optional parameter BLOCK is non-null,
then set *BLOCK to the address of the block corresponding to the
function symbol, if such a symbol could be found during the lookup;
nullptr is used as a return value for *BLOCK if no block is found.
This function either succeeds or fails (not halfway succeeds). If
it succeeds, it sets *NAME, *ADDRESS, and *ENDADDR to real
information and returns true. If it fails, it sets *NAME, *ADDRESS
and *ENDADDR to zero and returns false.
If the function in question occupies non-contiguous ranges,
*ADDRESS and *ENDADDR are (subject to the conditions noted above) set
to the start and end of the range in which PC is found. Thus
*ADDRESS <= PC < *ENDADDR with no intervening gaps (in which ranges
from other functions might be found).
This property allows find_pc_partial_function to be used (as it had
been prior to the introduction of non-contiguous range support) by
various tdep files for finding a start address and limit address
for prologue analysis. This still isn't ideal, however, because we
probably shouldn't be doing prologue analysis (in which
instructions are scanned to determine frame size and stack layout)
for any range that doesn't contain the entry pc. Moreover, a good
argument can be made that prologue analysis ought to be performed
starting from the entry pc even when PC is within some other range.
This might suggest that *ADDRESS and *ENDADDR ought to be set to the
limits of the entry pc range, but that will cause the
*ADDRESS <= PC < *ENDADDR condition to be violated; many of the
callers of find_pc_partial_function expect this condition to hold.
Callers which require the start and/or end addresses for the range
containing the entry pc should instead call
find_function_entry_range_from_pc. */
