Description

[NFC][SampleFDO] Preparation to support multiple sections with the same type
in ExtBinary format.

Currently ExtBinary format doesn't support multiple sections with the same type
in the profile. We add the support in this patch. Previously we use the section
type to identify a section uniquely. Now we introduces a LayoutIndex in the
SecHdrTableEntry and use the LayoutIndex to locate the target section. The
allocations of NameTable and FuncOffsetTable are adjusted accordingly.

Currently it works as a NFC because it won't change anything for current layout.
The test for multiple sections support will be included in another patch where a
new type of profile containing multiple sections with the same type is
introduced.
