Patcht to allow backends to chose the default section of a decl


  I would like to submit the following patch.  This patch creates a
new macro definable in the target specific header file called
SET_DEFAULT_SECTION_NAME.  If defined the macro contains a C
expression which can be used to set the 'section_name' field of
the provided decl.  This would prove useful for the v850 port.

	* c-decl.c (start_decl): Add use of SET_DEFAULT_SECTION_NAME, if
	(start_function): Add use of SET_DEFAULT_SECTION_NAME, if defined.

	* tm.texi (SET_DEFAULT_SECTION_NAME): New macro.  Allows backend
	to setup the section name of a decl when it is created.
