I created a .cc file containing lots of extern inline functions to see
what's the upper limit on number of COFF sections that CL.exe can create.
It shows the following error message when it hits 65300 sections.
fatal error C1128: number of sections exceeded object file format limit :
compile with /bigobj
So it looks like the number of section in COFF needs to be <65300.
