[PATCH] include/gdb/section-scripts.h: New file.


This patch creates a file to use when adding values to

I plan to check it in if there are no objections.

If one wants to add this to the gcc tree, that's fine by me, I'll
resubmit to gcc-patches.
I don't see a need to at the moment.  Not everything in include/
is in the gcc tree, so I'm just going with the flow.
OTOH, I can see a use for having this in the gcc tree: Some of its
libraries may wish to use this.
