In dwarf-2 debug_frame generated by GCC 3.1 I can sometimes see an
augmentation "L", that indicates a presence of pointer to something
called "LSDA (Language Specific Data Area)" in appropriate CIE/FDEs.
My questions are:
- What is LSDA for?
- When does GCC generate it?
- Should I support it in GDB? Do I need it for something?
