Hum.  I'm not thrilled.  And I think it may miss out on external
users of _Unwind_GetGR etc.

I like the _Unwind_GetPtr, for sure, for internal use.  I think it
should return void* instead of _Unwind_Ptr; all uses wind up casting
anyway, and that's a nice cleanup.

However, can we do something like

_Unwind_GetGR (struct _Unwind_Context *context, int index)
  int uw_index = DWARF_REG_TO_UNWIND_COLUMN (index);
  int size = dwarf_reg_size_table[index];
  void *ptr = context->reg[uw_index];

  if (size == sizeof(_Unwind_Ptr))
    return * (_Unwind_Ptr *) ptr;

  if (size == sizeof(_Unwind_Word))
    return * (_Unwind_Word *) ptr;

  abort ();

static inline void *
_Unwind_GetPtr (struct _Unwind_Context *context, int index)
  return (void *)(_Unwind_Ptr) _Unwind_GetGR (context, index);

Similar changes for _Unwind_SetGR.  We'll need to move the initialization
of dwarf_reg_size_table, and I do recognize that this depends on your other
patch to __builtin_init_dwarf_reg_size_table.
