From section 2.5 of the DWARF4 spec:

“DWARF expressions describe how to compute a value or name a location during debugging of a program. They are expressed in terms of DWARF operations that operate on a stack of values.
All DWARF operations are encoded as a stream of opcodes that are each followed by zero or more literal operands. The number of operands is determined by the opcode.&rdquo

The content of the bytecode chunk of an Infinity note is a DWARF expression as described in Infinity bytecode.
