    BaseTools: Use SEH exceptions in CLANGPDB for IA32
    REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2628
    This patch reduces the size of IA32 binaries by ensuring that
    no .debug_frame / .eh_frame sections are generated through forcing
    SEH exception model, which is already the default in clang for X64.
    EDK II does not support exceptions, and in future we should disable
    them instead of switching to some other variant. Currently this
    is not possible due to the following LLVM bugs:
    Upon applying this patch OvmfPkgIA32.dsc compilation in DEBUG mode
    gets the following size decrease with clang 9.0.1.
