// Class to describe an instance of a Thunk.
// A Thunk is a code-sequence inserted by the linker in between a caller and
// the callee. The relocation to the callee is redirected to the Thunk, which
// after executing transfers control to the callee. Typical uses of Thunks
// include transferring control from non-pi to pi and changing state on
// targets like ARM.
// Thunks can be created for DefinedRegular and Shared Symbols. The Thunk
// is stored in a field of the Symbol Destination.
// Thunks to be written to an InputSection are recorded by the InputSection.
