So __frame_state_for will essentially have to support all the .eh_frame
enhancements of gcc which compiled it, which will mean either that all the
stuff will have to coded twice (once in libgcc_s, once in glibc) or that
__frame_state_for will be far more closely coupled with libgcc_s (to share
more unwinding code).
