Commit: SEH: Add .seh_code function

Hi Guys,

  I am applying the patch below to add a new pseudo-op to the structured
  exception handling suite of ops.  The new pseudo-op - .seh_code -
  changes the current section back to the code section of the current
  function.  This is helpful because the code section may not be .text.
  Compiler optimizations may have changed the section name to something


2014-03-25  Nick Clifton  <>

	* config/obj-coff-seh.c (obj_coff_seh_code): New function -
	switches the current segment back to the code segment recorded
	when seh_proc was last invoked.
	* config/obj-coff-seh.h (SEH_CMDS): Add seh_code.
