Ug. The Right Thing is to fix the unwinder so that it identifies
frames by pc+cfa, like gdb does, rather than by cfa alone. The
assumption has been that a function without a frame can't perform
a call, and can only by unwound to via signals.
As a workaround for 4.7, you can try this hack:
.cfi_def_cfa 29, -1 # fake cfa one byte below sp
.cfi_register 29, 29 # "save" sp in itself so we don't use the fake cfa
.cfi_register 31, 18
