No argument from me there, but the same applies to VxWorks, who have
now chosen the same not-very-distinctive name, but it's even worse in
their case as that name has been in use by GCC for many years.

This seems rather foolish of VxWorks, but knowing that doesn't solve anything.

Could we install the file as unwind-gcc.h and conditionally install
another file called unwind.h with the content below if a configure
test including <unwind.h> fails:

#warning "This header file is deprecated, use unwind-gcc.h instead"
#include_next "unwind-gcc.h"
