Bug#516516: Provide all debug symbols

Package: libc6-dbg
Version: 2.9-0exp2
Severity: normal


the debug package doesn't help anyhow when inspecting core dumps. It would
be much useful if the package would provide the symbols for local
variables and thelike to get the full backtrace with gdb. That's also
what other debug packages of libraries do.

Quoting the discussion on #513341:
