That's fine with me.  I guess we end up with the wrong section
in the function descriptor / PPC64 case (".opd" instead of some kind
of  ".text" where the resolved function lives), but it shouldn't
matter, since the old code did that as well, AFAICT.

(I noticed that get_sal_arch doesn't consider sal.objfile, probably
because it predates addition of the 'obfile' field.  We could probably
fill in / use that field more, but we don't need to do that now.)
