I am experimenting with a single split dwarf (.dwo sections in .o files).
I want to make linker to ignore .dwo sections in .o, for that I am trying to add
SHF_EXCLUDE flag ("E") for them in my asm sample.
I found that currently, it is impossible to add any flag for debug sections using llvm-mc.
That happens because we have a set of predefined unique sections created early with default flags:
This patch allows a user to add any flags he wants.
I had to edit TargetLoweringObjectFileImpl.cpp to set MetaData type for debug sections.
Their kind was Data by default (so they were allocatable) and so after changes introduced by
this patch the SHF_ALLOC flag was applied for them, what does not make sense for debug sections.
One of OrcJITTests tests failed because of that.
