[llvm-objcopy] Change SHT_NOBITS to SHT_PROBITS for some --set-section-flags

Summary:
Some flags accepted by --set-section-flags and --rename-section can change a SHT_NOBITS section to a SHT_PROGBITS section. Note that none of them can change a SHT_PROGBITS to SHT_NOBITS.

The full list (found via experimentation of individually setting each flag) that does this is: contents, load, noload, code, data, rom, and debug.

This was found by testing llvm-objcopy with the gnu binutils test suite, specifically this test case: https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=blob;f=binutils/testsuite/binutils-all/copy-1.d;h=f2b0d9e90df738c2891b4d5c7b62f62894b556ca;hb=HEAD
