I specifically added that call for all architectures that use
_Unwind_Backtrace, since I believe they will all see the two
extra ASAN functions on the call stack since that is an artifact
of how _Unwind_Backtrace works.  That being said, it would be good
for someone to confirm that change works for ARM...or SPARC
once David gets the SPARC changes ready since he seems to me
not far behind us (ie, POWER).
