fyi SH has an in-kernel DWARF unwinder. It was my intention to shake out
most of the bugs (of which there have been a few) by having it in the SH
tree and then submit it for generic inclusion.

So by carefully placing .cfi_* directives in assembly, you can get
stacktraces for assembly routines in the kernel.

The branch containing the latest code is here,;a=shortlog;h=sh/dwarf-unwinder
