Description

[SampleFDO] Add the support to split the function profiles with context into
separate sections.

For ThinLTO, all the function profiles without context has been annotated to
outline functions if possible in prelink phase. In postlink phase, profile
annotation in postlink phase is only meaningful for function profile with
context. If the profile is large, it is better to split the profile into two
parts, one with context and one without, so the profile reading in postlink
phase only has to read the part with context. To have the profile splitting,
we extend the ExtBinary format to support different section arrangement. It
will be flexible to add other section layout in the future without the need
to create new class inheriting from ExtBinary class.
