I am not too familiar with the disassembler, but I think we
disassemble only one section, no? At least it doesn't look like we
have any disassembler test that CHECKs for "section".

I don't know where this came from. A possible guess is that some older
MSVC used to do this. Another is that it is just a way to work around
a limitation in the gas syntax.
Note that this patch is only for the MC changes. The patch changing
the section names to match what msvc uses will be a followup once this
one is in.
