This is clever and indeed cu_sec_idx () is not generic enough.
But this is also somewhat inefficient. I am working on DWARF5 support
and there a CU can come from even more different sections (or file). So
I am changing Dwarf_CU to have an explicit section to which is it is
associated. This can then also be used by the "fake" CUs like created
in dwarf_getmacros.
