Hi Kevin, Andy,

meant that it didn't get allocated through the MemoryManager at all, but
regardless it still ends up in the emitted object file.

The StackMap section not getting allocated through the MemoryManager might
be considered a bug, regardless of the SHF_ALLOC setting. I'm going to
discuss that with some people who are more familiar with MemoryManager.

Ideally, the stack map section should not need to be loaded. i.e. it would

For now I'd say "whatever works". I'm doing some investigation now to try
to figure out the right way to deal with this going forward - the
deprecation of the old JIT may mean that some of this infrastructure
changes or goes away.
