/* A descriptor for dwarf sections.
S.ASECTION, SIZE are typically initialized when the objfile is first
scanned. BUFFER, READIN are filled in later when the section is read.
If the section contained compressed data then SIZE is updated to record
the uncompressed size of the section.
DWP file format V2 introduces a wrinkle that is easiest to handle by
creating the concept of virtual sections contained within a real section.
In DWP V2 the sections of the input DWO files are concatenated together
into one section, but section offsets are kept relative to the original
input section.
If this is a virtual dwp-v2 section, S.CONTAINING_SECTION is a backlink to
the real section this "virtual" section is contained in, and BUFFER,SIZE
describe the virtual section. */
