I have a custom language where it's ~ equivalent to the c++ class:

class TEST{
     static int STATICFIELD;
     void INSTANCEMETHOD() {
     static void STATICMETHOD() {

the name "STATICMETHOD" is properly encoded in the dwarf debug info 
(where linkage name is the mangled name). I want "STATICMETHOD" back as 
it would be encoded in DW_AT_NAME.

I also want to get the SBType for "TEST" when I have the SBFunction for 

Both things are properly encoded in dwarf (as matching the c++ output), 
however I can't seem to find the right SB method to get it.
