Jim, can you help me out with the implementation details here?  How do
I set the Value of the MCSymbolData to the address of the data region?

Per Tim's comments, here's what I have so far:

void MCELFStreamer::EmitMappingSymbol(StringRef Name) {
  MCSymbol *Symbol = getContext().GetOrCreateSymbol(Name);
  MCSymbolData &SD = getAssembler().getOrCreateSymbolData(*Symbol);
  MCELF::SetBinding(SD, ELF::STB_LOCAL);
