FWIW we do use 64-bit DWARF-2 EH on Windows in our compilers and this works
almost out of the box (you have to enable it of course). For the sake of
completeness, I'm posting the attached patchlet that is needed to make it
work with GCC 4.5 and later, but might be of interest to those playing with
the DWARF-2 unwinder on 64-bit Windows and so worth integrating in the tree.
It is necessary in order to avoid buffer overruns caused by the different set
of call-used registers with the MS ABI.
