So now we have basic support for exposing the vtables information in the DWARF info for C++ objects, class__fprintf will just print something like this (from a struct in the CERN ATLAS project):

        /* vtable has 7 entries: {
           [5] = setProperty(_ZN9IProperty11setPropertyERK8Property),
           [6] = setProperty(_ZN9IProperty11setPropertyERKSs),
           [7] = setProperty(_ZN9IProperty11setPropertyERKSsS1_),
           [8] = getProperty(_ZNK9IProperty11getPropertyEP8Property),
           [9] = getProperty(_ZNK9IProperty11getPropertyERKSs),
           [10] = getProperty(_ZNK9IProperty11getPropertyERKSsRSs),
           [11] = getProperties(_ZNK9IProperty13getPropertiesEv),
        } */

We still have to support multiple vtables, but its a good start, and by looking at the linkage_name (C++ mangle-o-rama) we can get an idea where the vtable entries are from anyway.
