Can you please clarify what needs to be tested using .s files?

I think you want me to test that
  llc -filetype=asm | llvm-mc -filetype=obj
generates the same file as
  llc -filetype=obj
does for the new directives emitted by EmitCOFFSectionReference and
EmitCOFFStaticOffset (namely ".secrel32" and ".offset from L1 to L2").

Just wanted to double-check that I understood you correctly.

Done, http://llvm-reviews.chandlerc.com/D2425

>   c) Middle end support to handle the actual line tables. After a and b we can worry about this.
