SetSection in the MCStreamer if you really want to change the current
section, but maybe all that you need is to setSection in the Symbol?
Similar to what is done in MCELFStreamer::EmitCommonSymbol if the
binding is local.

Looks like all you need to do is create a data fragment, no? If so
doing it in MCELFStreamer is the right way to do it.
