Summary

GAS already allows flags for sections to be specified directly as a
numeric value. This functionality is particularly useful for setting
processor or application-specific values that may not be directly
supported or understood by LLVM. This patch allows LLVM to use numeric
section flag values verbatim if specified by the assembly file.
