[PATCH] Put _Unwind_DebugHook into .dynsym


If is stripped and no separate debug info for it
is installed, GDB can't find _Unwind_DebugHook to put a breakpoint on it.
The following patch forces it into .dynsym, assuming GDB would handle
it even if debug info is missing.  Of course when debuginfo is available
GDB should use _Unwind_DebugHook details provided in there.

The patch shouldn't slow down unwinding, as the call still doesn't go
through PLT, just has an exported alias.

	* libgcc-std.ver (_Unwind_DebugHook): Export @GCC_4.6.0.
	* unwind-dw2.c (_Unwind_DH1, _Unwind_DH2, _Unwind_DH3): Define.
	(_Unwind_DebugHook): If HAVE_GAS_HIDDEN, don't make it static.
	(_Unwind_DebugHookAlias): For HAVE_GAS_HIDDEN a hidden alias
	to _Unwind_DebugHook, otherwise function-like macro expanding
	to _Unwind_DebugHook.
	(uw_install_context): Call _Unwind_DebugHookAlias instead of
