We are implementing everything in the IA-64 ABI, which is defined by the
IA-64 psABI and the SCRA. We are not implementing anything in the IA-64 C++
This means we have basically everything except the unwind API defined in the
IA-64 C++ ABI. C++ EH does work, and it does use IA-64 unwind sections, but
it doesn't use the C++ unwind API. It uses essentially the same API as the
current dwarf2 based unwinder.
The unwind API is on our wish list, but we have more than enough non-C++
stuff to keep us busy for a long time, so it isn't clear when we will get
