[LLVMdev] LLD AbsoluteAtoms

I think that absolute atoms will need something similar to, 
"contentType" added.

SHN_ABS symbols can have different types, STT_OBJECT, STT_FILE and maybe 
others.  In order for the writer to tell it must have a way to reach 
back and ask the atom what type of symbols caused it to be created.  To 
that end I added a contentType method to AbsoluteAtom and sprinkled 
changes around to make this work.

What do the V1 suffixes mean in the Native code?  I had to add a new 
Attributes array to for the Absolute atoms and simply used, 
NCS_AttributesArrayV2 following the lead of NCS_ReferencesArrayV[12]
